Chasing the rainbow

By the time I got the phone out of my pocket, unlocked it and found the camera app, we had traveled far enough down the road that the brilliant rainbow that appeared out of nowhere on an otherwise sunny day had faded to almost nothing.

All I have to show of the rainbow is a faint streak coming out of the clouds.

But I remember the vivid colors, and that’s enough.

It’s funny, sometimes all it takes to turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary day is a rainbow. We are so easily lifted.

Maybe we should spend more time searching the sky for rainbows than looking down through the mud.
