Arc of Delight

The leaves are still wet

from the rain.

It came unexpectedly;

a brief shower.

One side of the street was sunny;

the other side rainy-

then, all at once, it stopped;

sidewalks glisten in the full sun.

Now, an arc of color streams

against the bright blue sky.

It reaches from one edge of the horizon to the other,

a vibrant gift to brighten my day.
