Perspective

I saw a gorgeous rainbow today that formed from rain falling from a cloud and evaporating before hitting the ground.  The effect was a multi-hue curtain hanging in the sky.  What really caught my eye though, was a dark spec among one of the colors.  I thought it was a grain of dust on my windshield but then I realized that tiny dot was an airplane buried in the vastness of a single color in the rainbow.  It was an awesome feeling seeing something as benign as a rainbow epically dwarf the largest of human creations in the sky.
