|Highway scenery, after the rain.|
Fleeting though it may be, a rainbow is always exhilarating, intoxicating, enchanting. It is a symbol of happiness, of hope, because after the somber rain somewhere, the rainbow appears mysteriously to brighten up the sky. Whoever sees it, his spirit is uplifted. A tinge of cheerfulness begins to form in his bosom and extends into a smile in his face. It must be the colors. Or the thought that beautiful things happen when they are least expected. Or the thought that God is smiling, hence, we should smile, too. That's the effect of the rainbow, the mystical connection between the heaven and the earth.
