Rainbow transience

ephemera of the mind,

love intransigent

no respect of time.


Shimmering splendour

the summer of our life.

Majestic magnificence,

cutting with a knife.


What tantalising trickery

deceiver of our sight,

fleeting, sneering, mockery,

obsessional opulent light.


Delightful and delusional,

experienced by all.

Impermanent illusion,

to trip and then to fall


Cloud burst emotions

pour down like summer rain.

Refractive reflections,

the eternal lovers’ pain.
