Thanks for the nice comments on the Rainbow poem.r  Hey, remember the blessing for Rainbows?  Here’s the story, with thanks to Chabbad.org:

When do we first see a rainbow in the Torah?  In parashat Noach, after the flood, G‑d promised Noah that never will a flood come to destroy the world. A rainbow is a reminder of this covenant that G‑d made with Noah, his descendants, and all living creatures. Therefore, upon seeing a rainbow in the sky, we are guided to recite the following blessing:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’ אֶלוֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם זוֹכֵר הַבְּרִית וְנֶאֱמָן בִּבְרִיתוֹ וְקַיָם בְּמַאֲמָרוֹ

Baruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha’olam zocher ha’brit v’ne’eman bivrito v’kayam b’ma’amaro.

Blessed are You, Adonai, Our G‑d, Ruler of all time and space, who remembers the [rainbow] covenant, is faithful to the covenant, and keeps promises.Pathdiv » 

~OR, take a moment to look, enjoy, and say “Thank you G-d – and may I also bring beauty to your world!”
