Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image.

I sit at my window at dawn watching the snow fall softly covering the ground with white. The sun begins to creep over the horizon, orange first, then blazing into red and a bright hue of yellow. Even purple has shows itself briefly. How remarkable the colors are and how quickly they change and re-blend, like an artist mixing his paints on a palette.

The light now overtakes the dark and the trumpeting of the morning sunrise is gone, like a magic wand has been swept over the horizon, it disappears. It’s going to be a beautiful day. The sky is now blue, clear and bright, as it often is in the winter. This is a late snowfall; pink and purple crocuses with their tender green leaves are breaking through the snow at fence post by the driveway. A sign of more color to come as the strength of the sun warms the earth.
