Comes and goes like a bird
Spreading the cry of joy

I see a peace sign

Secondary rainbow (to the left; red on the inside) and Primary rainbow (to the right; red on the outside); I see a peace” sign in the primary rainbow's interaction with the transmission tower and its cables / New Jersey / March 2008

“Every once in a while, if you get lucky, you may see a second rainbow on the outside of the first, brighter rainbow. This is the “secondary rainbow” which occurs when raindrops high in the atmosphere refract and reflect light back to the viewer.

These raindrops are higher than those which cause the “primary rainbow” and are special because they internally reflect the incoming sunlight twice rather than just once.” (via Patterns in Nature)
