The Second between Storm and Sun

From shore to shore
shadows almost black,
Corners, somewhat bruised;
dark, dark the hues
where water touches
rock and sand.
This is hilly land with windswept
footpaths leading to the lake,

Rugged, and yet the clouds
break on a tentative show
of sun, and then a rainbow
rising above the mountains,
as if this painting were done
in one split second
between the storm
and sun.
