Rainbow (a story for wearing)

Wrote this for a class. Fairly happy with how it turned out but it could probably use a bit of work.

The rainbow:

-      is light cleaned, prepared and divided;

-      in water;

-      into its individual threads.

(the moment the light enters the water – refracts – it is combed and twisted through teeth inside the raindrop until red, blue, violet and whichever other colours may appear are collected together but – essentially – not connected, every thread is carefully kept separate on one line alone.)

-      This happens instantaneously; the atmospheric droplets are manufactured specifically with this in mind.

-      These threads are then cast from the raindrop and carried by others in a processionary trail across the skies;

-      this being the arch of dripcloth; the rainbow.

The rainbow:

-      is sent to teach us the mysteries;

-      and beauty;

-      of fabric

(that we who with or unwoven skin cannot clothe ourselves only in light may practice the skills we will need on the ascension;

to wrap ourselves in brightness;

to sparkle in rain.)

Blessed be.

           Oh weaver;

Blessed be.
