Lucky; Rainbow Cloud

I wrote this poem back in college, basically it's about taking in all of your surroundings, finding the beauty even when there seems like there isn't any, and just having hope.

"Lucky; Rainbow Cloud"

Look up!
Today might be the day;
The sky is cornflow'r blue
With cotton candy clouds,
The windows reflect light into a thousand stars.
Oh, today might be the day!

The trees are bare with little sprigs
And sprouts of ever-green,
The grass is dry as straw - like bone
Upon the shore.
Look up, love!
Today might just be the day.

I glanced up but a moment -
One second sooner, one breath later,
I might have missed it -
That one cloud with all the spectrum.
Where is your pot of gold, Roy?
Your colors are shining, contained in
A misty white puff.

But, I looked up and saw you.
Yes, today might be the day:
To fall in love, to score a goal,
To pass a test, to find your way home.
Look up! Dear, just look up!
Today might be the day.
