Clipped by rainlight I weep velvet butterflies
Swimming in raindoubts blue dances waiver
Rainfrogs jump puddles of sugar and candy
Beat paraddile on daffodils and whip apple strudel
Skip soursweet crayons smeared after each rainstorm
Dissolve lollipops in rainsighs
Stop searching for dreams
Raindreams are split into gold and then blue
Turn grayish and rainspoiled
Spills often melt bows.
Should butterflies feast?
Or rainclouds lift daffodils?
Paint canvases crying against singing rainfrogs
Create brilliant paintings
Of soursweet yellowsoft fantasy rainlands
Of daffodils butterflies and rainfrogs
Butterflies drink rain
Choose sunlight instead
