The Rainbow

( By Jan Phillips )

As I stood there looking at the rainbow up above
I thought it was a symbol of his great and wondrous love.
The more I stood and watched and marveled at the sight
It began to get very, very, bright.
My heart was filled with love, laughter and joy,
I was just like a kid with a brand new toy.
The Lord began smiling and laughing too
And then instead of one rainbow there were two.
I really enjoyed the time we both shared
I didn’t know how very much he cared.
In my heart of hearts I now know
He was giving me my own private show.
It was such a beautiful sight that day
Nothing else could have made me laugh that way.
I can’t say enough about that beautiful sight,
Or about how much I loved the Lord that night.
I know the Lord was there to share his love with me
And he wrote it across the sky for all the world to see.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    A useful,indeed gentle reminder,that when we do enjoy what “Nature” has to offer,we sometimes easily overlook who it is exactly that has provided us with the natural world that so seamlessly surrounds us.
