What would it taste like?, I asked her with a smile.
It would taste like clouds and sunshine and mist and M&M's, lemonade and cherry with strawberries and whipped cream. It would taste like flowers and the green of spring-- maybe for you the purple would taste like wine, but not for me-- for me it would taste like grape popsicle. It would be very filling. My belly would be full from eating that rainbow.
I wish I could eat a rainbow too, I said.
You can, Mommy! There's one for you, grab it quick before it flies away!
And so I closed my eyes and reached up, pulled the rainbow to my lips, and tasted a miracle.
