Have you ever heard of the Leprechaun? The Irish fairy that kept a pot of gold full of coins on the other side of the rainbow? At least you’ve of that mystical thing: the rainbow…?
The legend of the leprechaun was the very first Irish myth I learnt (and at that time I didn’t even know it was Irish) and it fascinated me. I was very young as I never had the opportunity to see a rainbow for real so this rainbow thing was kind of a legend itself. The unbelievable thing for a little girl.
Since that my goal had been to see a rainbow in front of me. I knew the ingredients required: when the sun made its way through the clouds, I’d pray for the rain and when rain was pouring down, I’d pray for the sun to shine.
The hunt was tough, but I never gave up, though one of my flaws is that I’m always super impatient.
Then, desires are always fulfilled when we least expect them to.
Yes, I saw my very first rainbow. (it’s not the above photo lol)
It looked like I was living a dream. Si magical and mysterious! Where does it start? Where does it end? What about the leprechaun? I need to find its pot of gold! Yep I believed in the myth with all my heart.
And now everytime I see a rainbow, just like the one I captured for this week’s challenge, I wish to believe again in the Irish fairy and be back on the hunt for the pot of gold.
We should dare to follow our heart’s desires like we used to do when we were young. Of course the goals we now have are way more complicated and all… But for a little girl, don’t you think it was hard to search for the rainbow, something she never really believed it to exist except in cartoons?
So arise! And dare launch yourselves up to your most unbelievable dreams 🙂
An Evil Nymph.

Beautiful shot… I used to hope I’d see a leprechaun when I was younger! 😉
Thanks! That was so many children’s dreams ^^
Loving this and you for renewing my child spirit. Only today someone told me I have the naive emotional nature of a 12 year old. Thank you for reminding me that this is actually a very good thing with this line:
“So arise! And dare launch yourselves up to your most unbelievable dreams”
There’s a child in every one of us as the saying goes. You’re most welcome Aurora! 🙂
truly beautiful 😉
Thank you Shira 🙂
And you can run and run after that rainbow, a colourful ribbon in the blue sky, but it always seem to to be further and further away no matter how much you run, but all what matters is that you keep on chasing it because you believe 🙂 It’s very true that things change when we grow up and that’s just sad but no matter how old you get you can always be a kid at heart! Beautiful pic, Daphne!
Yes it’s so true! 🙂 Thanks for coming by, Devina!
