Painted Rainbows

By alisa muñiz blanchard all rights reserved 2013

When I was a child
I would paint rainbows on my belly
With imaginary paints and brushes
While on my back laughing
Clouds drifted by
Grass stuck to my sweaty back
Ants crawled over July 272
Legs and fingers with little notice
On either of our parts
In those moments pressed to the earth
Floating without abandon in the sky
Life was suspended
Breaking way for dreams and
Endless possibilities
