Rainbow’s end

According to Irish tradition at the end of every rainbow there’s a pot of gold guarded by a leprechaun. The only problem is that you can never find the end of a rainbow. As you come closer to what seems to be the end point, that shiny summit keeps shifting. Light, reflections and the curvature of the earth, keep transmitting that end-point perpetually forward.
But even though we can never locate an actual spot where a rainbow begins and ends our eyes tell us they are there and have an almost mystical fascination for us. That’s why the rainbow is the only celestial phenomenon to have been given divine importance. The Bible speaks of it as the visible symbol of God’s covenant with his people; a perpetual reminder of his mercy and love, which is far more valuable than any pot of gold.
