Rainbow embers

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

The day began with a storm, which melted into heat, which remained heat until a new fleet of silver clouds pushed in, and then there was storm again, the skirts of trees immodestly blowing.  We were celebrating my son's birthday at a restaurant when the rain stopped, and when I looked outside, a rainbow was arching over the telephone wires.  A half hour later, the sky was this, lit from below, I suspect, by rainbow embers.

This is beautiful, and I love the way you've described it too. "Rainbow embers" is perfect.

What a gorgeous description - I never would have thought to phrase it so wonderfully.
