The rain came down, and it keeps coming down, so nourishing to the parched earth yet so gloomy and low. It fits the mood. An event that must happen, for the world to survive But that, in the moment, only feels like a dreary moodsetter on a blustery day. It isn’t too dark out. Despite the rain coming down in torrents, it’s still bright. As I drive along the highway I see that rays of sunshine are poking out from behind the clouds, and I think that, somewhere along the distance, from the right vantage, where the brilliant sun rays hit the storm droplets at just the right angle, there might be a rainbow somewhere. Just too far gone down the road for me to see it.
