Awakenings: Rainbows and Raindrops

on September 2, 2013

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

All across America, the world in fact, is indescribable beauty often referred to as visions of grandeur. Each day presents itself in living color with sights, sounds, even smells that tempt and tease innermost emotions. Skies may be crystal blue and cloudless, or dark and dreary with hints of an impending storm. Even within the storm lies beauty…a calm at the end of which one may be lucky enough to sight a rainbow.

What awakens your senses of a forthcoming rainbow? Is it the sight of cloudy skies, the smell of oncoming rain, or the sound of raindrops pelting the earth? Perhaps lightening pierces the haziness of morning and rolling thunder disturbs the short-lived stillness of the air with news a storm is approaching.

Each sense brings on anticipation of sighting that well-known arc across the sky whose splendor boasts a colorful array of pastel hues. Have you ever taken the time to count how many colors you see in a rainbow? Is there a set number or a continuous innumerable spectrum of colors? Speaking of colors, what about Roy G. Biv…ever heard of (him)? Are the colors the same for every rainbow that comes into view?

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

“May each rainbow sparkle with colors of strength, joy, sunshine, harmony, faith, wisdom and spirituality.” ~SLS

    Are you talking about a literal rainbow? Because that needs sunshine while it’s raining, something that happens only occasionally around here, but which was an everyday occurrence in ireland. I loved those rainbows. I don’t know about grandeur, but I always thought they were there just for me.

      That’s correct about the sunshine and rain. It’s in the nuggets of info @Awakenings as well as the poetry. This is only part of the article. I’ve always loved the rainbow and still get excited to see one. In fact, I haven’t seen one in awhile, especially the double.

    I love the rainbow–reminds me of God’s promise to Noah that he would never flood the world again.
