Rainbows

Ok, I retract my comment about rainbows last week;)If you look real close at this picture, there's a second rainbow above the main one. It's very faint.

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa

  1. :-D Beautiful! This must have been from yesterday afternoon -- we were at the mall when the storm hit and waited for the rain to stop before we headed for the car. It wasn't until we got halfway to the car and suddenly were in wonderfully warm ANKLE DEEP water that we realized we should have been a bit more patient! So there we were, wet and laughing and splashing along, when we saw this magnificent full blown rainbow. Gorgeous!

    Yeah, all you needed to have to eat your words was a fantastic sunset to finish off the day...
    :-D

  3. I've always loved that song and when I hear it sometimes it just makes me cry. Of course, lots of things make me cry, my kids tease me about it all the time.
