a flotilla of stars

Walking the dog just now and the rain began. Bouncing off car roofs in the bright sunlight and casting into being a large rainbow in front of which, as the dog and I became soaked, I watched 5 star-shaped helium balloons float up from some friday-night gathering. I watched them until they were so small I couldn't make out they were stars, and then they went even higher.
