Somewhere Over

One of our favorite songs is “Over The Rainbow” and there are two additional verses, including this stanza:

When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There’s a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

Somehow that song fits into my flying dreams, such that aviation and rainbows mingle with Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” song in my heart. With the El Niño rains predicted to begin here tomorrow, I was up on the roof checking and fixing stuff. Yet it was Anne working on the ground who first looked up and saw this apparition hovering over “our” mountains.

7128 First Rainbow

Our first rainbow of the year, and one of relatively few in recent years, had a bright left edge. Fading in and out across the arc, it ended in a diagonal cloud shadow that seemed to point toward the coming storms. The vibrant colors seem to foretell the return of green to our mountains. Yay! 🙂
