Rainbow Factories

Every drop of water is a tiny little lens

a prism where the photons like to scatter and bend.

When you have a lot of drops, the light diffuses

and we see white with greyish hues

in clouds and storms and wet weather systems.

But this is a symptom of how we do vision.

If we had super eyes that zoomed way in

we'd see that every cloud has rainbows within!

Tiny little glimmers of every single color

bouncing around the cloud, mixing with each other.

It's a rave for the sky, it's a party for the clouds

when the base drops out all the rain falls out.

And if we're lucky the sun hits in just the right way

they will light up the sky with one final display.
