Inspired by the image "Shades of Light" by Peepsmile
Kicking at a mound of sand, I drearily awaited the torrents of rain that would soon flood the beach.
‘So much for inspiration,’ I thought to myself.
The menacing dark clouds masking the sun were already driving people away by the dozen. Only one plain, invisible writer remained.
‘Hmmm. I really need a metaphor for myself.’
I glimpsed a transparent, misshapen, uncolored rock on the ground, forlorn and half-buried. I picked it up, dusting the sand away.
I watched the beam from the lighthouse across the harbor circle its way to where I stood. A swatch of light brushed across my hand.
Split-second contact…..Instant rainbow.
