Colors of the Rainbow
Author requests article critique
RED ORANGE YELLOW GREEN BLUE INDIGO VIOLET
These are the colors of the rainbow.
Rainbows are lovely to behold, but cannot be held.
You cannot see a rainbow at high noon.
Sad to say, there really is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
You can't get to the rainbow's end, because it is an illusion; it moves away as you approach.
Rainbows are false prophets;they only tell you it has already rained.
However, they can be symbols of hope; they indicate that the storm has passed.
Rainbows are beautiful, but they have some drawbacks.
First of all, you can chase them forever, but never catch them.
Second, they only occur after a rain.
Third, they have no substance--they are, in fact, a kind of illusion.
Fourth, they only appear in the morning or the afternoon, never at midday.
Fifth, in order to see them, you must turn your back on the sun, the source of life and warmth.
Sixth, they are never there when you really need them.
So, in a way, rainbows may be nice to look at, but they announce the refreshing rain only after it has passed.
Many charming legends have been spun about them, but no one ever got rich by them.
The sun is the source of all life, though the rain that produces the rainbow is also needed.
You need the sun and the rain for life, but the rainbow, a by-product of the sun and the rain, is not necessary for life.
The rainbow is a mere afterthought.
The rays of the sun may burn and blind you, the rain may cause a flood with devastation and death, but the rainbow is harmless.
The rainbow is a messenger, telling you that the rain is over and the sun is coming out.
It's two-sided, a deceiver promising false riches, and a comforter telling you that the storm is over,things will get better soon.
Perhaps more than their beauty and mystery, that is why we are endlessly fascinated by rainbows.
