Dip Your Brush Into Sunshine.



When we look at our lives

It is like looking at a piece of art,

The canvas shows so much.

It can show so many wonders

And so much sadness.

That picture we paint

Can be of many things,

The colours brought to the canvas

Show the brightness in many ways.

The greys show the dull days

That are often there,

But we need to keep our lives bright,

Bright and full of love.

So when you dip your brush in the future

Dip your brush in sunshine,

To paint that love into your life.

          A fine bright write Gold.
          I read a saying I had not heard before. Something like: 'It does not take all day to realise the sun is shining'. It was relating to using various technology, now that more is available in this day and age.
          Just to 'see' the possibilities of it, if we are into I.T. as we see the sun, and it doesn't take us all day to notice it.
          Something like that anyway!
          Well, more I.T than in 1066 at least.
          Some tecchies call non-tecchies 'dinosaurs'.

            Thank you Orchi, the sun always shines on us Orchi, whether we can see it or not.

              Thanks Gold. The quote is: 'It doesn't take a whole day to recognise sunshine' in a song by Foy Vance, entitled 'Doesn't take a whole day'.
              I only came across this, as the author of a book was linking how the music industry makes use of I.T.
              How was I.T. in 1066?!

              How beautiful are the lines
              And how intriguing they are
              The life lessons learnt here
              The canvas is yours
              So are the paints
              Choose the colour of sunshine to make it bright for the rest of the days

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you spilleronsheet, may the sun be on your canvas for ever.

                  Thank you so much Andy
                  Even if there maybe colour of Greys
                  May I have the courage to change them and colour with bright orange instead

                  I think, through pain, sunshine eventually comes back to us.
                  Positivity is the byword to happiness.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    So true Paul, I am always a positive person.

                    inspirational, as ever
                    words, that will linger within me
                    for a long while, I hope..
                    thank you, wise Poet

                    • Goldfinch60

                      Most kind Mek and much appreciated.

                          I strive everyday to paint it someday. Words to live by. Good write Andy.

                            I love love love Jazz Andy. To learn this beautiful hue was Jazz inspired gives it a unique radiance. I will be sure to check out this band. Lovely piece sir.

                            • Goldfinch60

                              Thank you Garth.

                              The band were so very good, lots of humour and knowledge of jazz came to me from them and great music of the 20's and 30's.

                              Andy
