It’s nature’s consolation prize for a rubbish summer.
It’s the antithesis of foot long slugs.
It’s the antidote to endless mud tramped up the hall carpet.
It’s a rainbow.
This was a really good one, filling the whole sky out of the back window.
As it developed it became apparent
that it was a double rainbow, seen clearly
in both directions.
It was long lasting, enabling me to dash upstairs and photograph it
out of the back bedroom window across the tops of the trees and
out of the side bedroom window against next door’s television ariel.
I kept photographing as the rainbow faded
from a double to a single bow and thought how lucky we are on this planet to be so blessed with water that we can even have drops of it in the sky set against the background of endless space
to make amazing pictures with.
