The Rainbow in Our Hearts

Connection and IsolationPoetry

Artwork by Pahal Bhasin

In times like this,
We symbolize a rainbow,
Holding not each other’s hands but hearts.
Not physically attached yet emotionally connected,
Just like the ends of a rainbow,
Far apart yet close and beautiful.
We are the different colors,
Loving ourselves and embracing each other,
Beautiful alone but perfect together.

When we signify a rainbow,
We signify peace, prosperity, and justice.
Amidst this pandemic,
Peace and justice is all we need.
Let’s not lose hope,
And keep looking for a rainbow,
Around us,
And inside of us.
