Rainbow in clouds

Rainbow in clouds


The rainbow is pretty, so shiny and bright

Emerging through the clouds it's a wonderful sight

This bow that appears after the rain is over

Is a joy just like finding a four-leaf clover

If you get to the end there's a pot of gold

Is the story that from childhood I have been told

The bow that shows up after the rain

Promises the world won't be destroyed by a flood again

Thanks for highlighting the promise of hope that the rainbow brings. The rainbow always reminds me of my happy childhood.

A beautiful presentation, Cheryl, and, yes, that is the promise the scriptures give for the rainbow but I am still question the meaning of it. Everything physical has a spiritual counter meaning and for that one I am still seeking the spirit revelation is stands for. Thanks for presenting it.
