The latest Folding Mirror poem by Marc Latham is on the topic of iridescence in the sky, which has been one of Marc’s favourite revelations in the twenty-first century.
When Marc saw his first cloud iridescence he had not heard of the phenomenon, and thought it might be a vision, until he looked it up on the internet and found out it was a relatively common occurrence.
The best chance of seeing it is on high clouds around sunset and sunrise.
They are so beautiful that they do seem heavenly, so Marc understands how people might have interpreted them as heavenly messages before science analysed them.
Everything could still be godly messages of course, and we just understand how some of god’s science works now.
Anyway, here’s the poem, enjoy!:
Diffraction Delivers Sensory Satisfaction
light waves travel time and space
unnoticed by us on our Earthly base
until reaching cloud ice, dust and water
refraction leads to diffraction
creating exquisite sky corona, halos and rainbows
brightening up the void above most senses
space and time shown through iridescence
