The Rainbow of the Soul

The Rainbow of the Soul

A Poem by Bibliotroll Jack

The soul would have no rainbow
If eyes had no tears
A prism of compassion
You've nurtured through the years

The light that is refracted
From life' s struggle, bittersweet
Will bathe your better conscience
And put you on your feet

When eagles soar in skies above
When nature shows her art
Wildflowers paint the sacred plain
The sun shines on your heart

To spark the fire of destiny
And tend your passion's flame
So you can give more than you take
And minimize the shame

When sorrow floods on every shore
If wrong subdues the right
We listen to Great Mother 
Walk tall, be brave, and fight!

The soul that has no rainbow
Is dead to vibrant life
Will never find a balance
Just misery and strife

Let the spectrum of emotions
Pierce the window's welcome mist
The spirit will embrace you
With healing love persist

Your guide and inner-palette
The steady metronome
Reflecting shades of every hue
Will safely guide you home
Inspired by Medicine Woman Peroh by Linda Biggs and the Native American saying, "The soul would have not rainbow had the eyes not tears."
