Rainbows

On the way home today, there was a storm with driving rain and on the other side of the road was sunshine- two opposing forcing that were battling to exist.Both had hidden secrets of something that is not good- the sun can scorch and burn. The driving rain and storm forces can destroy and flood.Both have their good sides, the sun is warm and helps things grow. Offers light to us and helps our bodies stay healthy- the sun improves mood. The rain and storm refreshes the earth, waters the crops and fills the lakes. It offers puddles for children to play. The storm and the sun combined created the most stunningly beautiful and bright rainbow, a double rainbow to be more precise. I had to pull over and take a picture because of this beauty and the detail of the colours- all of them, clearly displayed. Stopping traffic everywhere so people could take a picture. It was not likely that this was the first rainbow any of us had ever seen yet, here were vehicles pulled over taking pictures of a magnificent view. It was a moment that could be caught in a picture and then still enjoyed- it was not fleeting. The memory is etched in my mind’s eye forever. The view, the opposing forces and the consequence of beauty beyond words.
