A rainbow forms and blooms bright after the rain
Finishing its task of wetting, replenishing the Earth,
As part of God’s plan to ease Mother Nature’s pain
And give our home, our planet a moment’s rebirth.
A rainbow is really God’s gracious smile at rain’s end,
And when you think about it, it occurs in perfect rhythm
So all can see and marvel at its splendor at storm’s end,
And tho’ its time is fleeting, its image is God’s prism.
A rainbow is always God’s promise and divine intention,
To help people pause and focus on a dazzling colored array
Tinted and formed in a picture perfect image and conception,
To help them relax, reflect on what’s important on a given day.
A rainbow is a noble and sublime reflection of God’s selection
Of wonderful images from Heaven brought to our mortal plane,
For a moment’s majestic gaze at this image of God’s conception
So people can seek a moment’s happiness and a surcease of pain.
