Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

For Viviana

On Tuesday I became a father to a beautiful little daughter. This one was written for her...

For Viviana

Like violets growing unobserved,
A love for you grows out of sight—
Until it bursts in brilliant bloom
When the time is due,
When all is right.

The amethysts once smuggled in
Now conquer me with shameless ease—
Unveiled, my heart is swept away;
This is meant to be,
This masterpiece.

Just days ago, I did not know you,
Now you’re a queen who I adore—
You wear your purple like a princess;
I clearly see
I’ll love you, Vivi,
