I seem to have been so busy for the past two weeks, that it has been nearly impossible to settle my brain to writing something. I have been either on the go or sleeping it seems. There have been some good "Words With Friends" and "Spider Solitaire" games, too... perhaps that is when I should have been writing. But it still seems like my games were more to try to settle in for sleeping after a long day.
So now I am sitting. It is finally not too hot, too! I cannot think in hot weather, and we've been having a bout of hot weather after all the rains. We are still getting some great rains between sunshines. Which reminds me of Sunday night.
Sunday night I drove home from church alone. My husband had to catch an early flight the next morning out of Manchester (NH) to Salt Lake City, so we drove separately. After evening church service, I headed home on my hour plus drive. The sky was spectacular, but I was driving, so I couldn't get a picture of it without jeopardizing the lives of all around me. Believe me, I tried, too! But I finally resigned myself to the fact that it would be dumb to be in an accident all for the sake of a beautiful sky!
But let me tell you what I saw.
On my left, the horizon was sporting puffy golden and pink clouds with upper highlights of silvery white on the light blue watercolored sky. To my right, there were heavy gray clouds, threatening rain. But in the middle of those gray clouds was a rosy deep pink glow, like the flushed cheeks of a child with a fever...the glow seemed to emanate from the cloud, but in reality it was the reflection of the setting sun on that cloud...and then...
two rainbows over that fevered cloud!
As I made a turning exit off the highway, almost reversing my direction, I saw now between the two sun creations, the bright white, almost full moon in the clearing between the clouds of the setting sun and the reflective clouds with rainbow.
How much beauty can you take at one sitting, I wondered.
I was mesmerized and wished that I could somehow get this recorded.
I guess I did in a fashion...
I hope my memory of it remains clear. At least I've written a photograph.
