'Oh, there's two.' Eyes wide and barely breathing Kurt stood in the doorway and gazed at the double rainbow. It curved up from the valley, spanning the swollen river and the flooded fields, and vanished behind the golden beechwoods on the hillside.
The outer bow was vivid, almost neon in its brightness, each color clear and distinct; the inner more faded and pastel. The two bows enclosed an arch of pale sky, almost rose tinted, while outside it was the same heavy gray that it had been all day - full of water and the menace of more flooding.
Of course, there is a scientific explanation for this phenomenon, but what is the real reason for it? Why, in the midst of such storm, such misery, does this shining band of colour suddenly appear, making small children gasp in wonder and adult hearts leap with hope?
The rainbow - God's promise that never again will the flood overwhelm us completely that even in the darkest, wildest storm there is beauty, and there will be peace.
