Rainbow Lake

January 26, 2010

______________________________________________________________________________________________

This afternoon I left my house on my bike, just thrilled to be out in the sun.  It was shinig so brightly, sitting low in the sky and making everything look clean.  But when I started pedaling up Lakeshore I noticed large drops of rain reflecting in the sun.  For just a second, I grumbled.  “Can’t we even get a break when it’s sunny?”  As I rounded the turn and settled in between those lovely orange baracades to cross over the bridge, I looked back over my shoulder and saw this.  Bright colors stretching over the lake in a perfect arch that seemed to put me and all of down town Oakland in a sunny snow globe.  It was better than a break, it was a rainbow ending in my back yard.
