I am not extremely optimistic and often I get taken by surprise when the going gets tough.
Many a time, when things get exceptionally unbearable, I'd look to the heavens asking for an answer and always, I never fail to be surprised by the rainbow that so miraculously appears each time like this, firmly hanging upon the majestic celestial canvas.
Yellow, orange, red, green, blue, indigo, violet.
These 7 colours combine, forming a bridge that seems to be part of Alice in Wonderland, the colours gleaming and sparkling, an invitation to step and walk on it, to the other side of the heavens where things don't seem that grey.
The darkness that block my vision disappear everytime I see the rainbow.
It is a great source of strength and hope, mainly for the covenant it represents.
These days, even when the sun is shining bright or when the night falls, if exhaustion, unhappiness or pessimism should try to form a shroud, all I have to do is close my eyes and summon the rainbow from the memory of my heart.
And remind myself, that every cloud has a silver lining... :)
