This is the shortest rainbow I ever saw. and I waited for this to materialize into a semicircle form, the way we usually see rainbows. It did not.
Mesmerized by the heavenly scene of the short rainbow vanishing right before my eyes instead of forming into a semicircle one, my thoughts wander…
Does it mean that there’s a broken path before the end of my rainbow where the pot of gold is? Or does it mean that my path will be shorter and I will find the pot of gold easier and sooner?
Either way, thank you God for this rainbow. I’ll go hunt for the pot of gold…
- You need a rainy day and a sunny day at the same time to make a rainbow appear. The sun must be shining behind you and there must be water droplets in the air in front of you.
- Rainbows are actually in full circle form not semicircle like we usually see. We only see semicircle because either the earth gets in the way of seeing the rest, or because there isn’t sufficient water suspended in the atmosphere to see the whole thing.
- If you see a rainbow, it’s yours and yours alone because no two people see the same rainbow. It has something to do with the person’s angle while looking at the rainbow.
- “You’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down.” ~ Charlie Chaplin
