A promise?A colored bow in the sky?
Oh, there's a scientific reason why,
but rainbows are like magic to me.
A myriad of colors. A half circle of light.
Rain and sunshine.
A change that can't make up its mind.
Watch for the rainbows.
Partial ones, whole ones, doubles,
only rarely a triple.
and if really lucky in a photograph.
Once I drove through one
with colored light on all sides.
Did I imagine it?
I don't think so,
but I have tried ever since to do it again.
Who wants a pot of gold
when you can bathe in light?
Rainbows teach us about life.
They are not about forever.
We cannot call them on demand
They remind us always-- be alert.
A rainbow is about
being in the moment.
They are about beauty
and like so many things of beauty
we cannot hold onto them
except in our memory.
As with sunshine and rain,
there are just so many rainbows
in each of our lives.
Collecting them is up to us.
