The Lord's arc plows the sphere
And blesses us. In the great pure arc
Are the blessings of the future,
But also my love, my waiting love.
J.L.Borges, from "The Iron Coin".
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.
