Rainbow over the sea

I was sitting in my favourite spot above the sea in Pett Level.  It had been the hottest day on record in the UK and I had finished lessons with my student, completed a painting and the heat had rendered most people inactive.  I had also checked in with my Mum who was sitting with the curtains drawn, fan whirring and we ate strawberries. There was a promised thunderstorm approaching so I walked up to the cliff’s edge to welcome it and watch it over the sea. I watched forked lightning for some time and chatted with neighbours who had arrived with wine to enjoy the same. They left when the rain started.  I stayed, relishing the experience. After a little while I sensed a golden flash before me and looked up. There was a double rainbow over the sea. It was like a beautiful portal. It stayed around an hour. Hot gusts of wind interspersed with cool gusts. I stayed with the rainbow. The colours grew and pulsed in intensity and I watched in awe. I took some photos although they don’t represent the immensity of its beauty. It felt like the most beautiful announcement.  A fanfare.
