Picture
The rainbow of color illuminates the sky:  Violet, cobalt, chartreuse, amber, gold, crimson and all of the shades in between; pure white split into all of its elements.  It reminds me of the way pure emotion splits into pride, sadness, envy, joy, fear and passion.

Long ago, the human race split into all of its colors and shades. Still, so few people appreciate the beauty and splendor of the tapestry.

With this beautiful death ray, I will remedy that situation.  The rays will unite into a brilliant white flash that will eradicate all human life leaving only the light behind.

You managed with only 100 words to beautifully describe the cosmic colours linking them to human emotions and then weaving in the origin of man, refracted into the many races and colours. I wonder then why you would want to obliterate us all into one big supremacy of light. Is it as a result of human ingratitude? Splendidly done!

Retribution will be swift - beautiful vengence in rainbow form. I like the story and the end twist.

Well, a switch in sentiment there, for sure. Nice twist. Well done.

A nice little switch-up at the end. I wasn't expecting that at all!

Very true words in the second paragraph and I hope we eventually get it figured out before we melt into that white flash.

Beautiful comparison between the colors of reflected light and humanity. I get the impression that you are speaking from the omnipotent point of view....

I was jivin's with the story and nodding my head like, "yea" and then you broke out the death ray. I was like, "Whoa!" that's one way to solve the problem. Lol.

Beautiful first paragraph, although you forgot the color blue. Second paragraph; sad but true. Last paragraph; With that death ray, you will remedy the situation? Clever...I know where you're going with that but with no offense... I prefer to wait for Judgment Day...for that is God's job. Here's mine:

Wow, this was a good take on judgment and race, but not only race even just the differences between us humans...and all in that short para!

What's NOT to love about the extinction of everyone and everything AND pretty rainbows too? This is a delightfully wicked bait and switch of emotions. I like it!

I loved your little tale, so peaceful and sweet an explanation of humanity's continued inhumane behaviour to all differences - and such an amusing and devastating solution! I loved how you just let it flow into the simple innocence of the alien death ray!
Made me smile with dread!

Beautiful description of the rainbow's colors along with the analogy of the human race. We certainly test the Creator's patience, I'm sure. Thanks for the nice comment on mine. :)

What a wonderful way to describe how the human race has managed to become so separated from itself - just amazing :-)
