Rainbows

2016-01-25 20.44.42 smThe cloud hung over us, a smooth grey blanket pouring steady rain.

But out on the edge, near the mountains, the sky was clear—a thin sliver between cloud and mountains. So as the sun set, for a few minutes, it sat in the gap.

Gold rays of sunlight lanced across the plains, setting the trees on fire and casting immense shadows from every obstacle.

And forming a perfect double rainbow so bright it hurt to look at it.
