Each New Day.

Every day it happens,

Or so it seems.

I step into the shower,

The water streams over me.

It takes away the sweat,

The grime.

It also washes my mind,

Taking any worries,

Worries from the previous day,

Takes them away,

Leaving only good thoughts,

Good thoughts within me.

So I am ready to face the day,

Face the day with goodness,

The goodness that is with me,

That is always with me,

As each new day begins.

    A fine write Gold.
    Aww, whey thy fly me to the moon and leave me there? They not want to hear my melodious tones.
    But we were already there in 1969, welcoming the first men on the moon. But we were the first there! Did we ever meet E.T.?

    • Goldfinch60

      E T had left as he heard you singing as we were landing.

          It is so very good that you take your good and positive feelings into the world each day. In our currently very troubled times, one wishes that such feeling existed in so many many more of our fellow human beings. The ugliness of racism and the apathy of the masses of apparently christian people witnessing it is truly saddening.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you d a, I m always positive.
            I totally agree with what you say about the ugliness in our society at the moment, and for those who believe, "Where is christ?"


          • Michael Edwards

            Every day is a bonus.

            • Goldfinch60

              So very true Michael, enjoy every one of them.


            • Andrew Charles Forrest

              I thinks this is why showers were invented
              It's like a fresh start
              A new pair of socks
              Clean sheets on the bed
              Opening the window on a cool morning
              Excellent piece Andy
              Thank you

              • Goldfinch60

                Most kind Andrew, each new day is special.


              • The Uneducated O.A.P

                Showers ? Washing? What's all that about then, can't be doing with that,takes too much time, and no problems with social distancing ! Nice one Andy, Bill

                • Goldfinch60

                  Time is the one thing that we have at the moment so I can shower for as long as I like, sometimes even five minutes!

                  Thanks Bill.
