Arcing high
at the moment of sunset
the sign of the covenant
rearing up east

through refraction
in silent multitudes

Ablaze in the west
at the minute of sunset
dappled in gold
reds and amber

Clouds and raindrops
a canvas and backdrop
for endless permutations
of colours and hues

For only a few moments
until the rainbow fades
from zenith to horizon
taking its colours with it

For only a few moments
until the clouds fade
into the grey of dusk
and disappear into the night
