An Orange Bloom

I was caught in the rain again, and needed to run for the shelter before wishing for a rainbow. You see, a rainbow is considered to be "a path made by a messenger between Earth and Heaven", but have to admit I am yet qualified to witness the heaven. Somehow, I waste no time to enjoy every second in the Earth that equally treats everybody, be it poor or rich, male or female and "ivory or ebony".

Although the rainbow was missing, I spotted an orange bloom in return. It was bright and charming that I could not resist sharing with you.


It must have slipped from the rainbow.

I might be right; it grabbed some yellow before leaving the heaven.

== sorry if I have to quote you, but I love it entirely. I was so surprised to see the orange bloom, it is the happiest bloom coming from the rainbow.

As pointed out by VanillaSeven and Betchai, I like to re-iterate your words -'I waste no time to enjoy every second in the Earth that equally treats everybody, be it poor or rich, male or female and "ivory or ebony" '. Very true and we all must enjoy every bit of it!!

I watched a cartoon when I was a kid that had a rainbow bridge to heaven that the messenger would use to move back and forth. There is another story that says there is a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. Your orange bloom is your pot of gold this time.

cherie: I can't enlarge the picture, but luckily you managed to see the glint of yellow. Don't frighten me away with a peom! lol.
Anyhow, it is your rainbow that inspired me.

VinillaSeven: But there are different types of perception on this...

betchai: I think so. It must be the happiest bloom.

Kirigalpoththa: Let's continue to enjoy our life, to the fullest.

Cher: Thanks for your hat, thanks for your comment. Thnaks a lot.

Icy BC: Then I am sure I see rainbow. lol.

Ginnymo: If I write a little longer, will it be a cute post anymore? lol.

Ratty: Then I must be the richest man in the world, full of bags of gold.

Wow.. amidst the gloomy backdrop that lil blot of luminous orange stands out the most. I could faintly see a tiny fringe of yellow too. And I wonder out of those two, who enjoyed 'a stroll in the rain' the most.. was it the one without an umbrella or the one with it..? =D

Yep.. I too agree.. we all should enjoy life's every moment.. to the fullest.. as you say. ^__^

Catching a rainbow always brings a smile or cheer to me. Haven't seen a rainbow in ages...hazy, hot and humid days lately.

Bangchik and Kakdah said...

You could just be right rainnie, how many times have we spotted people flash out orange colored umbrella!.. very rare color for umbrella. The old teachers taught kids about ROYGBIV.., a nice way to remember rainbow colors. The young teachers will have to find another acronym!
