Rainbow in a Cloud

"So don't you give up now, ooh, ooh
So easy to find
Just look to your soul
And open your mind
Crystal blue persuasion, mmm, mmm"
~ Eddie Morley Gray, Mike Vale, and Tommy James
I saw my first rainbow in a cloud last week.  The Husband gave me a scientific explanation for it. Something about ice crystals in the air. From my reading on the Internet, generally in terms of spiritually, a rainbow in a cloud symbolizes hope, promise, serenity, and peace among other positive ideas. I like that. It got me humming "Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Tommy James & the Shondells. 

While I was taking photos, a bird flew across the sky. I clicked but I was sure I got nothing more than his tail. So call me happily surprised when I found this among my day's clickety-click captures.

    1. So true! Remember in Pollyanna when she and two others strung up prisms in the window?

  6. Ha, grrrreat tune. I thought Fleetwood Mac from the first few lyrics. I've never seen one and didn't know they existed, incredibly cool and the full bird shot in the foreground—applause!

  10. In a word...exquisite...with no need for scientific explanations from husbands (bless their little pointed hearts)! Stricken with awe, we give science short shrift, I'm afraid.
    Thanks for sharing, Susie!
