If everything were always golden and shiny,
What would you do?
I want to pay attention to darkness and sadness too,
Because not all lives are happy and cool.
When excitement and freshness are gone,
You shall not quit and frown.
Treat pains and loss wisely,
A surprise may tickle you fondly.
My Entry 4 Magpie Tale #53
I fear I would not be able to cherish the beauty unless there was darkness around.
Sweet! I love the last line.
"Treat pains and loss wisely,"
Thanks for your visit to my Magpie and your comment.
Amen to a most true and wonderful statement!
You always have such a good outlook on life! : )
Nice Jingle. I love the last line too.
Love this !!!
Oh...so true, Ji!! Cuz only if we know sadness, can we really appreciate the value of joy!!
Wise words here, my friend...nice!!!
That is so well constructed and so compelling to read. Exceptional.
Treat pains and loss wisely..
i love this line... this poem is so true.... :)
Wise words indeed! We do not know what the future holds and it's right that it should be so.
"I want to pay attention to darkness and sadness too,"
Yes. And perhaps the dark times make the light seem even brighter when it comes...
Thanks for your nice comment on my recent post :)
wise words indeed and beautifull written!
Jingle - was a bright, inspiring read!
I like the last line .It made me smile. Laura
For I stand where I am to see
For the world around is illusion to me
But I know that I am in this blend
Nothing I can do until it ends
So I move about in this special place
Knowing that allowance is always in space
enjoy my Dearest Jingle(+)
You can't have pain without pleasure nor light without darkness. Sometimes it's nice to just sit and wrap the darkness around yourself.
Oh, yes, change is coming! Nicely done!
Ji, this is very profound, very Buddhist ... not to resist ... to sit with things the way they are and not judge. Quite wonderful. Well done ...
very true jingle.
hahahaha, it tickles me now!! Refreshing work Jingle!
'I want to pay attention to darkness and sadness too, because not all lives are happy and cool.' and 'Treat pains and loss wisely' are my favourite lines... Maybe because these lines reflect the side of me which many (around me) could not quite comprehend...
Thanks for the congrat.. :)
Oh yes, I was captured by the pic and check out the meme.. Well, I did a poem about it..
Do check out mine... Similar to yours but more on questioning.. :)
I know we can't have the light without that shadow. This is a good reminder and so well said. I stared at this prompt for days and nothing came. You knocked it out of the ball park. :)
such wonderful statement and so beautifully crafted ... well done!
Experiencing pain and sadness definitely makes the happy times all the more special. Great poem.
Jingle, I would say that is very
Oh this is a really important life lesson...so true!!!
I totally agree that we need some context to fully appreciate anything. Well put.
I LOVE it - it is so REAL. Refreshing! :)
Thanks for stopping by. keep visiting.
In painting, you must have shadow as well as light. If you don't, the light is flat and meaningless.
Great poem & last line,
And *see* you again soon!
It's true! The good things mean little without a contrast.
I almost forgot! Just what day is Firday, anyway??? Hahahahaha!
You Jingled nicely your way out of that one! ;-)
