Count Rainbows.

We go through our lives each day,

We have good days,

We have bad days.

As you go through them

We need to remember that this is life,

This is what life is.

But do not dwell on the bad days,

They will become storms

And drag us down into despair.

So look up to the light

And always remember

To count your Rainbows,

Not your thunderstorms.

      Good write and clip Gold. We can know it's not just wishful thinking or escapism. Are you a wise bird? And if so, a blackbird, or that lune bird in your poem?!
      A thunderstorm can be exciting - if we're not outdoors in the middle of it!

        Wonderful first read of my day Goldi - - rainbows are what we all need to see and believe in. Thanks for this posting.

        • Goldfinch60

          Rainbows are magical and mean so much. Thanks Fay.

          Your reflective poem reminds me of one of
          Joseph Campbell’s quotes...
          “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned,
          so as to have the
          life that is waiting for us.”

          Great write!
          I enjoyed listening to the clip!

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Laura, life is full of surprises that we didn't plan.

            • Laura

              That’s for certain!

              Life is experiencing. We must be appreciative of the gift of experiencing both ends of the spectrum ... the rainbows and the storms.
              Well expressed in this good poem, Goldie!

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Louis, yes we must experience both ends.

              • myself and me
