Colours

I wake up and see the sky.
It is grey.
the suns on holiday.
I look at the world outside.
It is blue,
and smells wet.

On my way to school
the wind rises up
and makes the dust dance
to a tune I’ve heard before.
The air is yellow,
the road is black.

In the rooftop cafeteria
thats when the rain begins to fall
and the cold begins to gnaw
and you hear the Earth try to sing.
The mud is brown.

The water falling is getting louder
like a million hand clapping
a gazillion fingers snapping,
bones breaking, thunder cracking
and the clouds rumble hungrily.
The horizon is purple.

The people lose their minds
all at once, at the same time,
and they dance to music
only they can hear.
They’re wet through.

Come and watch us be alive,
become a part of the magic.
Have you ever seen the ground
get up and stretch.
Hear the trees breath a sigh of relief.
It is finally cool
They are green.

You only have to wait
just a little bit more
to see a rainbow you can touch
and be a part of.
Its true.
Just wear red.
