big rainbow (2)


The picture doesn’t do her justice. What I could see were five distinct colors in a full arch that exceeded the width of the camera lens. It had been a glorious cloud-free day until late afternoon. She advanced in front of the cloud bank blowing in from the southeast across the bay. Her multicolored wings spread in a magnificent display of beauty only possible in nature.

 

A couple of months ago, her sister paid a visit as a spring storm retreated off shore out over the ocean. I don’t know if it’s just me or the wonderful place I live, but I’ve seen some of the most splendored skies since moving here. Rainbows so big they fill the entire sky are just one of the many marvels that just take my breath away.

 

Rainbow (2)

She comes in colors ev’rywhere
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She comes in colors ev’rywhere
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue?
See the sky in front of you
And her face is like a sail
Speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev’rywhere
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold?
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev’rywhere
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors
