When the Rainbow Shines

A Poem By Libby // 10/8/2018

Auburn sunsets
O’er silver mountains
Bring home to me
A rare completion—
It’s like I’m not done,
But I don’t need
To worry much
About the future,
About my grades,
Or how my friends
Are acting strange.
The clouds, so peaceful,
Are painting streaks
Of feathers, white—
Cotton fluff
Stretched o’er the sky.
And when the rainbow shines
All is well.

C.H. Spurgeon - "God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God. "

Thank you, Joy! I'm so glad

Thank you, Joy! I'm so glad you liked it :) I wrote it for no reason other than that I was just feeling that way, and I'm glad it touched someone other than just me :)

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

I love it!

A beautiful poem. <3 It has a tranquil sort of feel that makes it wonderful to read and re-read. Well done!

I love this

This is so peaceful and sweet. It has a gentle lull about the rhythm that slows my heart and gives me a feeling of quiet rest. The imagery is beautiful and perfect, as always.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

Thank you, Damaris. :)
