Pot o' gold.
Feared lost in sea of life-certainties.
Possibly dressed in red tape bearing tax-man's insignia.
Reward offered!
(Valuable four-leaf clover will be delivered by the first available leprachaun.)

It's Monday, the sky looks like the photo but the rainbow is gone and there's a lot of water falling out of it now. The sound of the wind blowing amongst the yacht masts outside has gone from being a pleasant tinkling - not unlike a pretty wind-chime - to a howling akin to a pack of werewolves.

And if you haven't had enough of my burbling yet, feel free to
read my latest Flash Fiction attempt. You'll find it over at Terristories.

Ah yes, the tax-man. That most villainous of the villains. Even Josh Randall couldn't get hold of him.

Linda said...

A beautiful rainbow!!
I luved your description of the wind!

Jeff said...

Brigitte said...

Loved the story, Terri. I wish I could write like that.
As for finding that pot of gold... sigh

You've captured that rainbow nicely!

The rainbow is very beautiful, I wish there was a pot of gold at each end one for us and one for you.

Terri said...

Anne - Josh Randall? I'm confused.

Beads - It was a very pretty rainbow in a very stormy sky, and it looked good like that for a very short while just around sunset.

Jeff - Thanks, and enjoy!

Kynknoord - What, a rainbow? Oh, you mean the pot o'gold... well I'll be sure & let u know when I find mine ok?

Spookie - Yes it was one of those wild, wet & windy days here.

Chitty - ... and I wish I could rant like you :-)

Jason - Thanks :-)

Lori - What a good idea! Now, if we could just get hold of those leprachauns...!

That's a good photo alright. We saw the most amazing double rainbow on Saturday. The best part was that we were at Bullock Harbour, so we could see the "end" of the rainbow(s) going right into the sea. Easily one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

Terri said...

-Ann - amazing indeed. That rainbow you saw is the same one in this photo :-)

I love rainbows. I wonder if somebody ever got to the end of a rainbow to get that pot of gold. I use to try that when I was little.

Terri said...

whatalotoffun - Me too... not to mention the hours spent at the bottom of the garden looking for a 4-leaf clover :-)
