Sunday Thoughts and Photograph: Broken Rainbow?

Lately I’m frequently spotting rainbows and this one’s the most recent. I spotted this four days ago while watching UFL (soccer) games at the University of Makati (Philippines).

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…

Scientific Truth:
  • 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.
Life’s Truth:
  • “You’ll never find a rainbow if you’re looking down.” ~ Charlie Chaplin

  1. That's right, agree with the facts you've mentioned. I was lucky enough to spot a rainbow for the first time in Europe last month on our trip to Sweden. My hubby didn't saw it but when I showed him the pics, he was smiling because of my reaction, I was kinda jumping off my chair feeling astonished "I found the pot of gold" scene! LOL so babaw no?

    1. Wow you saw your very own rainbow!
      Don't worry Gracie, we're both so "babaw" when it comes to rainbow. I think it's one of God's miracle - it brings a certain joy and hope to people.

      It can even make me feel poetic :)

      we need scientific truth to have an intellectual understanding about the things around us. but this should not stop us from believing God's wonder and miracles. :)

  4. It's been a while since I last saw a rainbow! Para pa naman din akong batang excited pag may rainbow! Kung full circle talaga ang rainbow, meaning wala itong end, at wala ring pot of gold?? Waahh!

    2. I think almost all people have this unique happiness when seeing a rainbow. As I replied with Gracie, it is one of God's miracle.

      Taking from my "personal trunk of wisdom" on rainbow's shape as being full circle and not semi-circle - because it represents the wheel of life. This doesn't mean that there's no pot of gold because there's no end in one's journey. There is and we always find and have one. However human nature has no satisfaction. We continuously look for a more shiny and fuller pot of gold. Maybe that's why God made us see the semicircle form only. So we'll have hope in our hearts and not tire our minds in going through the circle of life. It is his message that there's always a pot of gold at the end of our rainbows.

      Forget that the rainbow as full circle. Continue believing that it is semicircle and that it has a pot of gold in the end. There's a reason why it is called rainBOW and not rainCLE ;)

      Have a blessed Sunday!

  8. I love rainbows, they're just magical. We can try to explain how they come to be, by science - but it just really can't explain how magical and wonderful it is. Fan ako ng rainbow ano? hahaha :)

    Anyways, bakit nga kaya putol, baka installment na ang rainbow ngayon :)

    what i know ay yung rainbow ay sign ng promise ni God kay Noah na hindi na niya babahain ang earth.
