Rainbow Ring

Shore, Clouds and Rainbow

Within a year the waters laid down sediments with waves.
Today the fossils found display the opening of graves.
Engagement with a rainbow ring seals the covenant that saves.

Eugenia offers the prompt “rainbows” for this week’s Thursday prompt.

For a biblical account of how our ancestors survived the global flood and the covenant afterwards, see Genesis 6-9. For an introduction to the evidence that this cataclysmic event actually happened, see The Flood.

Although we often see only a small arc of rainbows, from certain perspectives these rainbows can be seen as rings.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Your rainbow photos are glorious, and your words are lovely, Frank! I read, in some legends, a complete rainbow, seen in full circle is an omen of the circle of life. Thank you for participating in the prompt!
