The Rainbow in my Sky

a poem by Aparna Ramnath

Seven friends in my life
For the seven colours in the sky,
One brighter than the other
But together does our strength lie.

The start, in school, began
So young and tender,
Twenty years ahead
Our friendship is still a wonder.

Each in a place
Today has made a home,
But the seeds of a lifetime
Are in us eternally sown.

Seeing us together now
Is rare as the bow in the sky,
But the colours painted in the heart
Is forever and will never die.
