Gift from the heavens
strokes of colour in grey skies
refractions of light
replace worries with wonder
awaken the child within.

AN: Lucky to have seen a rainbow today while driving home. Felt very blessed that I decided to try a new style, Tanka. Rainbows always make me feel special as if the world stops still and it is me and the miracle.
I don’t know a lot about Tanka poetry, came upon the style by accident and have been wanting to try it ever since. I hope you all like it, and the pivot sentence (3rd sentence) is correct. Tanka poems are not supposed to have titles unless it is a string but added it for my reference.
Any feedback is always welcome.
