I see with my artist’s eyes a rainbow in the sky.
It has lots of color:
Blue, purple, pink, orange, red, white, and green.
I am at the beach. At first, the water is cold.
Then the water turns hot.
My mom gets into the water.
It’s cold for her, and then it’s hot.
Then, as we swim,
the rainbow goes away.

Rush of water
Coming down to us from the skies
After rain, rainbow
Red is the color of lava bursting out of a volcano.
Black is the color of a cave where the deadly bats live.
Gray is the color of metal that holds things together.
Brown is the color of mountains high in the sky.
Green is the color of leaves hanging on a tree.
Blue is the color of waves in the sea.
Yellow is the color of the sun out in space.
Purple is the color of wild berries hanging on a bush,
And white is the color of stars high above me.
