what the rain doesn’t wash away

The Rainbow set as the symbol of the Covenant ...

listen to the rhythm of the pouring rain
a pleasant little sound like my life so plain

drop by drop the rain keeps coming down
with our falling spirits bringing so many  frowns

at least Noah is safe and dry in his Ark
while Physicists are searching for the elusive quark

and we are so secure in our blissful ignorance
but is this vast universe really left to chance?

I suppose the questions will continue until the very end of time
with the meaning forever lost in this silly enigmatic rhyme

so just what is the lesson hidden within the rain
if things go wrong in our lives, who is to blame?

perhaps it’s time to wash away our wrongs and bow low
and start all over with a fresh rainbow

    This is an old high school poem. The orginal had things like “pitter-patter” and “splish-splash” between all the stanzas to represent the sound of the rain. I don’t care for repetition like I used too, I guess. Excuse me now, while I get in from the rain.
