Rainbows and promises

I was greeted by this beautiful rainbow when I got home today, and decided to share it. I have seen painted rainbows, but I have not seen a good one. Even my photograph does not really pick up all the wonderful ways the sunlight dances off the water droplets in such a remarkable event. I understand the physics behind rainbows, but I still consider them magical. I am not sure why they are so difficult to capture in photos or paintings, but it may have to do with their transient nature. There is also the transparency. It is there, but it is not. Perhaps, somethings are not meant to be painted. As to the promises - in Hawaii, there is always the promise of the next rainbow, but it is always a welcome surprise.
