Lent, day 4: arc of covenant

Genesis 9: 11 
'I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; 
never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth...'

Never again.
And in the sky, mark of rainbow sealed the deal; 
mercy a-glimmer in the heavens,
translucent shimmering hope
of life,
of love. 
Etched and stretched across blue.
Arc of covenant
bending,
extending grace.
