I started reading this and then I got to the end and... wow. Amazing. I really love the contrast of colors that kind of just exploded in my mind. :)

I love this poem, but I think it might be better if it weren't a haiku. I think it would make more sense if you rearranged it a little.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

I love this and completely agree with it! I wish people would see life for what it is. I wish they would push aside the grey fog that is clouding their vision so that they could see the rainbows. good job!

I really like the message of this haiku.  It almost comes off as cynicism but I can hear what you are trying to say!
