Poem of the Day ~ The Rainbow

The Rainbow

Effie Waller Smith

Love is a rainbow that appears
When heaven’s sunshine lights earth’s tears.

All varied colors of the light
Within its beauteous arch unite:

There Passion’s glowing crimson hue
Burns near Truth’s rich and deathless blue;

And Jealousy’s green lights unfold
‘Mid Pleasure’s tints of flame and gold.

O dark life’s stormy sky would seem,
If love’s clear rainbow did not gleam!


Positive Thought of the Day ~ Be the Rainbow

“Try to be the rainbow in someone’s cloud.” Maya Angelou


Everyone has a bad day now and then. It’s all part of living. It’s a priceless gift when we take the time to lighten someone’s load. It may be a needed hug, a listening ear, or surprising someone with a home cooked meal. The possibilities are endless. Make someone’s day, be the rainbow in their cloud.

Today’s Poem ~ My Heart Leaps Up

My heart Leaps Up

William Wadsworth

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.


What If . . .

What if I chose to take today one moment at a time what will I do about planning ahead? I think I’ll keep one eye on the present moment and the other eye looking ahead for a rainbow. That way we can keep a balance between living too much into tomorrow or too much into the moment. It’s a delicate balance. It’s more like a dance where each partner anticipates the moves of the other. There’s no looking back, take the memories that help or heal, discard the rest and dance on. 

What If . . .

What if your greatest dream came true would you stop dreaming? We’re designed to dream. We’re designed with a hope gene. We’re designed to look for rainbows, mountain tops, and clearing skies. Here’s hoping your dreams come true and they continue to come true. Dream on dreamer.

Today’s Power Thought ~ Today Gives Us a Chance

Today gives a chance to prepare for tomorrow. Tomorrow has a big rainbow waiting for us. We may have to put in the hard work and a number of todays to get to the tomorrow we want, but it’s there. Tomorrow wants us to court it and show it how much we want it. Don’t give up. Don’t quit.

A Better Life ~ The Rainbow Will Appear

There are somethings you don’t get over, you just get through. These are the tough things. We’ve no choice but to keep going, keep hoping, and keep looking for the rainbow up ahead. Keep on walking, the rainbow will appear at the right time.
