Chicagoetry: Rainbow Over the Adler From An Omnibus

Rainbow Over the Adler From an Omnibus

True story: atop
An omnibus
At the Museum
Campus, after a brief
Shower,
Grinding my teeth

With grief
All day, around and around
In the
Rain,
Grinding pain . . .
First, Burnham Harbor: a glimpse,

A
Glimmer. Sheen. Then,
Clenching my
Grief
I saw, complete,
A rainbow

Over the dome
Of the
Adler Planetarium.
We all
Saw it,
Momentarily

Transcending
Unbelief:
Exuberant
Relief
Complete: a sea, shards
Of rain, a little

Light.
Boom: in full
Arc, God's
Shimmering,
Shattering
Grace.
