WHOA!! Has it really been THREE MONTHS since I posted in this thread?!  . . .

Okay, it has.

Tell me what you all think of this poem.

Rainbow in Waterdrops

Come down from the clouds once again
Flash lightning bolts through the sky
I’m soaking wet, wishing for dry

Raindrops are melting from the eaves
Small gems on the numerous leaves
Look up close, nothing better to do
Discover a whole new worldview
Raindrops are pounding on your head

In the droplets from heaven there can be found
Arches of color wherewith mighty clouds are bound
In those midnight moments when all seems dark
Flickers of light can revive a glowing spark

Rainbows encased in waterdrops
Hope hidden within great despair
Joy lights our lives, though flooded out
Arch colors over misted air

Rainbows will fill the sky again
Though momentary, shining gems
Add vibrant hues to the blue
New worldview, and what will you do?

From neon to pastel, they come
They’re royal to crown a kingdom
In doubles and singles they span
Blue skies above this chaos called man

In our lives on the ground when the darkness falls
It can be hard to see through these dense rainy squalls
Yet those rainy days allow life to abound
Flowers must sprout and rise from the muddy ground

Rainbows encased in waterdrops
Hope hidden within great despair
Joy lights our lives, though flooded out
Arch colors over misted air

Without rain, the rainbows wouldn’t lift the sky
Shadows are proof that there’s a Light shining out there
Downtrodden drives us to hope, sparkle for your eye
In the stormy weather, take the sunshine’s dare

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
