Rainbow egg

The sky was remarkable today. I knew before sunrise that it would be. A few feathery clouds to the south were drifting casually as if they had no where in particular to go on this Sunday morning.

A jet smaller than a mosquito raced off toward the west leaving a thread of vapor across the sky.

Flipping out my mat and punching the play button on my player, I started breathing slowly. Intentionally.  

As I flexed and stretched, the morning came alive around me. 

After finishing, I punched the brew button on the coffeemaker, and sat on the couch reading. I heard Jilda stir. The aroma of the coffee had brought her to life.

This afternoon I had a meeting with our songwriter group to discuss out gig next Sunday. 

Heading for home I saw an oval in the sky. The sun played on the moisture in a cloud making an egg-shaped rainbow.

Pulling to the side of the road, I snapped a photo out the window of my truck. The picture doesn't do the scene justice, but it will remind me that I saw something remarkable.


  1. Great picture...sounds like a great day as well!

  2. The sky is such an incredible moving canvas - I often find myself staring up at it in awe!

  3. It is always fun to catch mother nature at one of her unique moments. Have a great day, I'm heading for the'TO do list'....

  4. Having to entertain on week ends must be a lot of fun.
    Keeps you alive and stimulated.
    I am still into wilderness survival and watched a guy cry though 2 months of starvation
    cause he couldnt find enough food in the wild and was lonely. There were enough deer,moose, bear and swans but the laws don't allow you to kill them and there were not enough small animals or fish. Since he was filming his survival, he could not afford to tell anyone he ate well by killing a deer out of season. Guess he should have gone when he was allowed to kill big game.

  5. You always start the coffee in the morning and then Jilda wakes up... How come I always have to brew the coffee for my husband in the morning? He gets home from the barn before I do... I guess I make better coffee than him, lol...

    Your sky looks interesting.


  6. That's a beautiful photo.


  7. Great start to the day! Sounds lovely. The picture is nice.
