Believer sees a gift from God The atheist, refraction But both agree it's beautiful And brings them satisfaction Muslims, Jews and Catholics All follow different leaders But all can see the beauty of The irises, the cedars No matter what our differences Of color, creed or race The same breeze cools a sweaty brow The same sun warms a face As birdsong in the morning, The cricket's chirp at night Can bring woman and man alike A sense of great delight The rainbow should remind you that We share our place of birth A ribbon to tie a priceless gift: Our precious planet, Earth.

Thank you--I agree, he needs it badly. Unfortunately, I kind of doubt he would be receptive to the message.

@AliCanary There was a double rainbow behind our son and his wife for some of their wedding photos.

@AliCanary Do you know where the picture is from? It reminds me of some mountains I'm familiar with just Northeast of Glacier Park Montana.

@TheHorse - I got it from Pixabay, but if you follow the link to the Pixabay site, sometimes they give more information about the photo. It may very well say where it was taken.

Thank you! It is always so remarkable to see one. It's the rarity that is so delightful, I guess!
