bursting balloons wrapped in rainbow
carry the darkness up and away
splashes of refreshed, vivid colors
force the thunder clouds astray
arms wide extended, prancing to and from
myriads of rejoined, bracing town squares
shadows packed, locked, sent missing
more destruction, the storm no longer dares
frolicking wills move in instead
afar, nearby, nearing, or there
honed by the warmest, keenest of hearts
to soar over you, with utmost care.
Your new lives will not be bare.
