Yesterday, when no one was looking
a rainbow broke free of its arc,
spilt colours into summer sky
releasing clouds from white cages.

Birds swam in strange hues, beat wings
thickly against dripping ink, left
iridescent swirls in their wakes and sang,
mixing paint with music.

Makes me think of sunset. I like the inclusion of the birds' music, very fitting.

Aish, no, not a painter, but your comment is more appropriate than you know in this instance ;-)

H., Thanks.
