A Thought for Today
The sea grows hungry every August, tired of
eating only rivers. So when the glances end on shore, take your ankles
to the water.
And after every
an August rainbow
sunlight in the good green wood
laughter in the town
shelter in the noontime shadows
or here inside each other’s arms.
No one can kill our rainbows
though sometimes the world
seems bent on trying.
I want you to remember
when things don’t go exactly right
in your outside world
that there is safety here.
A rainbow bridge,
a patch of light
at the end of trouble’s tunnel.
Walk down the day easy
knowing our security
going wherever we go.
-from “Celebrations of the Heart,” 1975 and
the album “Summer,” 1975
