The Rainbow connection...

Rainbow is a beauty that all of us will stop to watch. Spotting a rainbow, I have spend hours trying to understand it. But that’s of no use. They were there since God made the Universe and they have fascinated all who have stopped to watch it. In the Holy Bible, the Rainbow is a sign that tell us that God isn’t fed up with his creation....that the world will tick forward under God’s immaculate providence. But still, what is a rainbow? Can I ever discover the truth of a rainbow? Can I ever hear the rainbow talk? The enigmatic silence of the great arch is always a marvel of nature that one finds it difficult to escape.

We all meet rainbows in our life....we meet occasions that tells us that life is worth the living for the values we have stood for. We may not be able to decipher the rainbow...nor may we be able to feel the difference between the violet and the indigo. Can we? Can we find the exact region of separation between two colours in a rainbow? I have often contemplated that mystery. Still we see the difference and understand that life is a complex picture of colours that God has instilled in all of us. The beauty of life is this diversity of colours that rainbow represent. Though the colours are all arched in one great rainbow, they still stand apart giving the beauty that is unique in the sky.

I do not know anything about rainbow. All I know is that others too doesn’t know much about it. Yet life goes on and rainbow never ends.... and I will continue to be a dreamer and a friend of the rainbow.

Let me quote some verses from a poem by Paul Williams:

"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".

Kenny Loggins made Rainbow Connection into a memorable lullaby.
