In response to Sue Vincent’s writephoto prompt. Thanks for hosting it Sue. I couldn’t use the prompt word “appointed”, yet I proceeded with the first thought on my mind ..
“One for sorrow, two for joy
Three for a letter, four for a toy ….”
If I saw one, I used to keep my fingers crossed
Searching for another black crow, long way I had walked
How silly was I, when I would play this game,
For a small sad event, seeing a crow took the blame
To know the secret, I need not look for the seventh crow
The power of my thoughts and my imagination I did not know
Positive or negative, whatever it is , that my mind imagined
The whole universe worked its way, to make sure, IT happened!
A/N: You guys remember this rhyme we knew as kids? One for sorrow, two for joy..? Sue’s prompt took me back to childhood here. I used to keep my fingers crossed on seeing a single black crow, so that nothing bad would happen!!! And somehow, something unpleasant would invariably happen!!
Our mind starts looking for “sorrow”things at the background on seeing one black crow I guess.., and on seeing two, it starts looking for instances of joy. It’s just a game of mind, a game of our thoughts
The concluding lines is slightly based on “the secret” book I read a long time ago. It talks about the power of imagination and how our thoughts become our reality.
Thanks for reading… would love to know if you had come across this rhyme in childhood 😊
