After the Rain

Once busy,
Once obliviously driven,
The rainbow chase
Of ambitions and regret.
All is quiet now!
Reflection and hope
And desperation;
Mixed colors of despair.
The moment holds
The future, a heavy uncertainty.
The past a framed rose.
The path forward, 
A light of love
Which transcends
The dark and returns
Us homeward!
– Burt Baldwin, Ignacio
