Reflections on Love and Life

reflections on love and life, beautiful rhyming love poem by joys of joel, inspirational love poems, pondering heart quotes
https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Welcoming waves
as I see from a far.

Amazed by the maze
that ponders a willing heart.

Random thoughts
that suddenly seep

Who would have expected
it would swept me off my feet

How could you say
it is not to bloom

when i see nothing
but gardens of roses inside my room.

A dream is not a dream
until you wake up from it

then suddenly you found
yourself gasping for breath

The tide at its height
and the fire in his eyes

seem like signs
for that unexpected mire.

Although the sun is so bright
yet the clouds are in its form

as if it’s about
to welcome a storm,

But how could you see
an impending rain

if the sun is so bright
it blinded your eyes?

The clock suddenly move
voicing out its call

saying it’s time
to heed its alarms.

You can go back to sleep
and be lulled by its troll

or wake up and dive in
and be ready for a fall.

Life is Like An Ocean

life is like an ocean, joys of joel beautiful life poems, inspiring life quotes, how do you surf the waves
Life is like an ocean – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Life is like an ocean.  It comes in waves ebbing and flowing.   Sometimes the water is calm, sometimes it’s overwhelming.  And just when you thought you’ve seen it all, you’ll be caught by surprise that there’s more to come.

Realizing that life is a cycle.  Still being thankful that there will always be something to be grateful for.  And knowing deep inside that there will always be something beautiful to look forward to.

Yes, the best wave of your life is still out there.  Learn from the waves and enjoy the ride.

The Reluctant Surfer

The reluctant surfer
I used to be
scared of the storm
and the waves I see

the water looks deep
and the height is steep

Avoiding it
I thought i’m a wise man
so I just stay on the beach
and build my castle on the sand

But even on the shore,
the waves swept it all

Can’t believe
I thought it’s safe
when i build some walls

So I look for surfboards
and try to ride
the waves that come
and learned from the tide

The fear from the fall
and the pain that it brings
when one is too slow
for paddling and wave breaking

Slowly as i passed
the eye of the tide
and survived the waves
that almost blinded my sight

I stand up all wet
and teary eyed
wiser this time
as the tide subsides

The reluctant surfer
I used to be
gone is the fear
and i’m finally free.

I thought i am the master
until i was enslaved by you

Nothing could be more true
than what Ernest Hemingway once knew

No matter how many times
we’ve been through it

We’ll always be the apprentice
who’ll never say adieu.

Waiting by Joel F

beautiful love poems by joel f, quotes about hope and faith, joys of joel poems, inspirational rhyming poems
Waiting – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Short as life is,
our expectations make it shorter
by the careless whisper of time.

And even if time can heal a broken heart,
it can also break a waiting heart.

The sun always shines
and hope always floats

Though the river never pass
and touch the same stone

We wait and believe
that the rainbow of life
offers a pot of gold.

At The Airport, A Tale of A Flying Affair

At the Airport, a tale of a flying affair, poem about tryst and love affair, joys of joel poems, infidelity
At the Airport, a tale of a flying affair – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

At the airport you left your sorrow
To fly somewhere for a hopeful tomorrow.

You hand in your ticket to check in your luggage
Weigh in and get rid of your excess baggage.

Frisked and screened at the xray machine
Nothing to hide except your love that’s a sin.

You enter the gate and wait for the boarding
At the airport where no one will be watching.

As you enter the plane looking for your seat
Reminds you of the time you were hiding the cheat.

Now the crew is explaining and in detail they are showing
Where to find your life vest if the plane will be crashing.

Like a heart that is drowning, the affair that is diving
You think can be rescued if both of you started leaving.

The seatbelt you are locking, this time no one’s blocking
This is what you’ve been waiting, tomorrow he’ll be boarding.

In the middle of the flight, a speaking recurring dream
His wife is crying while your husband is calling.

Awakened by a scream, turbulence suddenly starting.
Looking at the window, lightning starts to follow.

Holding on to your prayer, to make you feel stronger
Believing in the promise, that you will still be together.

Beholden

Beholden, rhyming poem about letting go, joys of joel poems, inspirational life poem
Beholden – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Summer singing

Its lovely goodbye

still you say

don’t leave me sunshine.

 

Leaves are falling

turning golden,

still you think

you are beholden

 

To memories

of summertime

like chasing

elusive butterflies

 

but when winter

showcase its

magical

snowflakes

 

you dream

of bonfire

scented

autumn

 

for you

rather kiss

the breeze

of yesterday

 

than embrace

the beauty

of tomorrow’s

blossoms.

The Promise

The Promise, how can i get my money back, joys of joel poems, humor, rhyming poem credit loan word of honor
The Promise – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Still here waiting
and really hoping

The promise i wish
you’ll be fulfilling

Should i wake up
or keep on dreaming

or is it just
a wishful thinking?

Your sweet talk
i still remember

that dreary night
last september

Tried to call you
but you’ve been avoiding

my calls and text
as if i’m not existing

And when i call you
please stop thinking

That i’m doing it
because i miss you

It’s almost christmas
i’ll buy my honey

the gifts he wants
so he won’t leave me

it’s now or never
so please remember

i need the money
the cash you owe me

if not i’ll send you
a lovely letter

and i will be
your forever stalker.

The Red Poncho by Joel F

why red poncho is like love, the red poncho, , joys of joel poems, rhyming poem about love
The Red Poncho – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

You knit or you weave,
whatever it is
The red poncho when i see,
reminds me of your kiss.

The magic of its fabric
The strength of its stitch
The mystery of its weave

The warmth of the yarn
that embrace me as i wear it
Somehow i knew
the red poncho is like you.

It covers me when i’m naked
though i wonder why it’s knitted
in a way that’s complicated.

Just like the memories
that you leave
the red poncho
reminds me

As you knit and weave,
that a needle is needed
to create a lingering memory.

Purple Sky by Joel F

Purple Sky – Photography by Kim, Poetry by Joel F – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

A new dawn is welcome by a sunrise
but not always with a blue or yellow sky

The little ship that brings some light
will soon arrive and greet the morning star.

Still water and yellow trees
will calm and wipe your purple tears.

And if somehow the purple sky
embraces you with all its hues

Just hold on for it won’t be long
the sun will rise to change its song.

Prejudice by Joel F

poem about prejudice, racism, bigotry, joys of joel poem, rhyming poem
Prejudice – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

Red roses are so inviting
The fiery color you can’t resist.

Thorns that might be hurting
The wound that bleeds as it persists.

Petals in yellow, pink or orange
Silent voices that sound so foreign.

Blindly believing that red roses
Are the only roses that exist.
