From the Latin for “rainy arch”, rainbows are droplets of water that disperse light into arches. The bigger the droplet, the more intense color. Rainbows occur at an optimal 42-degree angle, appearing differently to each one of us but always with the light of the sun at our backs.
Only the top arc of a rainbow is visible to most of us, appearing to end with the horizon, but there is more. From a wider vantage point, one can see the full circle.
If you cannot see the full rainbow after a storm, you might be the droplet of hope in someone else's. -----G. Hill
Droplets of Hope Outside my window, I see Some bright colorful Droplets of sweat, Droplets of tears, Droplets of hopes, Droplets of dreams, And a Rainbow of future. -----Renu Rathore
What mysteries lay so softly concealed Sinking into obscurity . . . but Calling me beyond for meanings revealed. Each droplet a mysterious orb. Questions that tug, so much to absorb. Like the rainbow, I bend to a higher authority. -------G. Hill
For we walk by faith, not by sight. -----2 Corinthians 5:7

Colors of the Wind The rainstorm and the river are my brothers The heron and the otter are my friends And we are all connected to each other In a circle, in a hoop that never ends How high does the sycamore grow? If you cut it down, then you'll never know And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon For whether we are white or copper skinned We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains We need to paint with all the colors of the wind You can own the Earth and still All you'll own is Earth until You can paint with all the colors of the wind. -------Disney, Colors of the Wind
