The other side of the rainbow

When I was a little girl
I heard about a rainbow
Spreading across the sky

A path to riches
Unrefined and as illusory
As the gold promised

Undaunted and intrigued
I followed blue, green and gold
Until colour washed clear

And I found a place,
Unchecked in breadth, border and beauty
Where I wanted to run

The other side of the rainbow, poetry by Roshan Grossman
