Rainbow

A rainbow is the marriage of sunlight and rain. When kissed by a raindrop, a beam of white light disperses, in a similar way to light through a glass prism, into the colours at the ends of the visible light spectrum. We are taught about optical phenomena in school science lessons. However, as a child I believed in a magic bridge to the land of the fairies and that, at the rainbow’s end, I would find a crock of gold.

My response to Carpe Diem #1410 Rainbow (short-haibun)

Today’s theme is ‘rainbow’, together with a haiku by Kobayashi Issa use or revise in a short-haibun, with a maximum of 100 words (including the haiku).

evening’s fall colors –
the rainbow in the valley
fades away
