Small stone – Refracted light

Rain eased off eventually and I ventured out. At full steam I headed for the station, and stopped in my tracks. Rising from Earth arched the clearest rainbow I had seen in years. Painted against a charcoal canvass each spectrum of the bow stood proud. Cloud beyond red held a foreboding hue, and a fainter rainbow played on its surface. Below the blues the shade of grey held less menace, as though the sun was looking down a tunnel and illuminated the far end. That refracted white light became obscured as I boarded a train and the brightness at the rainbow’s apex faded away.
