A Proof is in the Rainbow...

From where did you come from
and when will you come again
Maybe the closest thing we can observe in life
to the unknown .....but then

Isn't it only water and light combined
all explainable to the non believers
Go ahead ....use it as you will......
.atheists...the great deceivers

And how is it that the rain falls only here
in the meadow and why
As I sit here on the stone lined
wall ...still high and dry

I wish I had my camera to prove that
our God is right
That non believers are just lost
somewhere .... away in the night

I read it once .....some time ago
"It would require more faith to NOT believe"
Is it just a choice .......or is it true
are you trying again to deceive

All right my friend .....think as you must
it's your self preservation
I will chose to believe ..........
in his love .....and salvation

I looked down through the meadow....at my house
with a rainbow centered above
And blending away into yours on each
end......our Gods rainbow of love


Yes , I sat the other night above my home looking down through the trees , into the meadow
as a summer storm passed . And I just knew a rainbow would show itself . And in a few moments there it was above my home ...centered ....and on each end was a neighbors house.
As I sat watching God work his wonders , I knew ! He is always there........

There is nothing more beautiful than the rainbow..I too believe it is one of God's most wonderful creations..it draws us to him, it calls our name..

Thank you,

The content looks simple yet is profound. Rainbow is a wonderful metaphor, the seven colors convey different emotions.

ahorseback, is this a new profile image? Very nice. Beautiful poem; much to allow our minds to imagine...this place removed from the logical and applicable...a wonderful way to spend your day. The aftermath of summer storms is so clean and colorful with risidual clouds, moisture in the air creating rainbows...

Sunnie Day , I can't believe how much peace and serenity that God has granted me in my middle age years. I am too much a loner to go into church with others there, but I love the quiet and yet the sounds of stillness in an empty church building too! The rainbow that I saw there began near the church here in town . We are so lucky arent we?.....:-}

ahorseback signs of God's wonder is all around us and the sign of the rainbow I believe is his absolute best. To watch from a distance as you did, the wonder of the rainbow caressing and connecting two homes is a miracle and a site to behold.

I had the good fortune once when driving my semi through the Columbia gorge to see and drive through one end of a rainbow, now that was one heck of an experience. I looked through my west coast mirrors as I drove through it and it was still there as my trailer's end left it.

I truly believe it was a blessing from above. Peace and may all you and your loved ones days be filled with rainbows.

This was a lovely read. :)

Just when I think you can't write a better poem you abng one out like this. I am speechless and awed by this beautiful write dad. I am guilty of not taking the time to enjoy our masters beauty. I absolutely believe that if we all spent time in nature we would all have no doubt in an awesome God. Can you imagine... we have only seen a slither of His beauty and unconditional love!!
