Portland Oregon Rained On Me

"Can you feel it?" she begged. "Can you? Because I sure can. The rain brings change. Have you noticed that? I love how it washes the dirt away, making the city look new. It makes me feel so alive. If the clouds give way just a little, I bet we'll get a rainbow. Oh, I hope we do."

What could I say?

It's not that I prefer the streets dirty...
It's not that I wish the city to be old...
It's not that I would rather see a solid gray sky without a slice of color...

...but I know.

Her hope for a rainbow is a hope for something better. She'll always be holding out for something better.

Better than this.
Better than here.
Better than me.

Leaning in, with a dreamily distant gaze, she asked...

"What are you thinking right now?"

"I guess I'm hoping for a rainbow too."
