The Promise


Arching above the rain drenched ground

An awesome sight to see

The rainbow majestic can be seen

The coloured bow with colours set

Red orange yellow green

Blue, indigo and violet


Does the sight thrill and make you stare?

Stop you in your tracks

Does it make you look up in awe

And contemplation?

Wondering about tales of old

At the end is there a pot of gold?


Then fading to nothing without a sound

Blink and it's gone

Or missed altogether

And when it's short lived splendour fades

Do you remember the promise of old?

Or just the promise of a pot of gold


Genesis 9v13
