Reflection on Refraction

The rain has passed; I step out
From the place I found to shelter,
Breathing deeply to savor
The fresh greenness of the damp air.

I spin round to see the colors
Washed clean of their dirty dullness
Shining with vibrant newness
As the sun sparkles on droplets.

I raise my eyes as the clouds
Recede, the sun warm on my back,
To be greeted by wondrous
Light bridging the far horizon.

Those many tiny raindrops
Perform a final miracle,
Bending beams of solar light
Into a beautiful rainbow.

Rainbows and departing storm clouds, Minsi Lake, Northampton County.

  1. They say visualizing something is the same for the brain as the real life experience; they say one must experience 5 positive for every negative experience; this started my day on a very joyful high! Thank you Alex!
