Desert Rainbows

there are no rainbows in the desert
because the air is dry
there is no surface to reflect on
to show colors in the sky


there are no rainbows in the desert
the environment is arid and alone
it takes both sun and water
to make a happy Home


there are no rainbows in the desert
the sun dominates the sky
the plants and animals have adapted
to living hot and dry


there are no rainbows in the desert
just like no man is an island on his own
it takes resources and connections
to make life something well known


there are no rainbows in the desert
just like there are no fires in the sea
no waterfalls on the plains
and no scales on a bee


everything has its place
in this world so wide
but don’t confuse yourself with a desert
sometimes you need to cry inside


with those tears come a rainbow
of colorful shimmering hues
the desert transforms to forest
and new growth begins in you


there are no rainbows in the desert
we need connection in order to grow
we need sad times and glad times
and space for the rainbows to show


everything is a balance
that is how life exists at all
we happen to be in the perfect place
on a green and blue ball


there are no rainbows in the desert
so stop isolating yourself on your own
it takes laughter and it takes tears
to make a happy Home
