Not a great photo, but a gigantic rainbow appeared in the sky this evening. Joe, my evangelical Christian neighbor, came out in the street to look and told me that in the Bible, rainbows were a promise from God that He would never flood the earth again ... you know, after the major flood that Noah survived.
Also, it put me in mind of a song I once wrote and a friend made the music for ... whose first stanza went:
Rainbow, oh rainbow.
I love you, I do --
So whole and so shining,
Hung out in the sky-blue.
Say where do you go
When the storm clouds have passed
How come and how is it that you never last?
