RAINBOW RISING LIKE A ROCKET (New Year's Eve 2012)

Rainbow

(as I drove across north Antrim on New Year's Eve, a wide and very robust rainbow rose skyward out of the fields in front of me... it was a wonderful message of the hope of a new year where all is refreshed and full of possibilities... I played with the thought through the rest of the day and wrote my rhyming prayer for us all...)

Rainbow rising like a rocket

To rip open the old year sky

Burning bright promise of a future

Now that’s a flag we all can fly

For rejuvenation and redemption

All the possibilities of imagination

A city coming down out of heaven

Casting Shalom all across the nation

Where the old can walk the streets at night

And the children can play all day

Where men and women go off to work

For much more than their fiscal pay

Where everybody has a belonging

And there’s no talk of them and me

Where every neighbour loves their neighbour

And makes friends with their enemies

Where we all learn how to love mercy

And seek justice in all that we do

Walking humbly before our God

Deep, gentle and gracious and true

Rainbow rising like a rocket

To rip open the old year sky

Colours exploding in the new one

As all that’s been fizzles goodbye.
