Dancing in the Rain

 

 

Dancing in the Rain

~

What awaits such delights choosing well

 

among choices we have to dispel,

 

choosing life for what it is, not what could,

 

deep inside must we learn it is good

 

and enjoy every taste, every smell-

 

~

 

Bucket lists won’t exist if we are done

 

as we erase or we take, then add some

 

until hearts learn to beat every morning

 

and not wasting a gift with conforming

 

with a little of something or just none.

 

~

 

So I say let’s forget all the misery and pain

 

and choose life as the goal to attain,

 

why must wait for the storm just to pass

 

when we can all the happiness have

 

if we learn how to dance in the rain.

      Of course, doesn’t work the same if freezing You can come and dance in the Flroida rain anytime Started my Scuba classes and will be diving in two weeks. That was my second item of my bucket list, so feeling particularly good

    Good one Som. It’s like they say…Everything’s better when wet. Well maybe not everything, but you know what I mean.
