Crystal Clear – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Serenity captured by my lens
through a beautiful lake
enclosed by a snow covered mountain.

Nature whispering
its stillness
I now understood.

Questions being answered
calming my mind of thunder
and my pondering heart.

Finally, a moment discovering the answers
it’s all crystal clear now,
no whys no hows.

I Don’t Hate February

beautiful love poems joys of joel, the best flowers for valentines, february love quotes , flowers in february, why i love february
I don’t Hate February – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I don’t hate february,
it’s the only time
i buy flowers for me.

If a quote
speaks a thousand words,
then you can quote me.

And if flowers
can make one speechless,
let them speak in silence.

I’m supposed to write
something for valentines
the treasures of being together

Then i remember
you gave me artificial flowers
suddenly i changed my mind.

Life is Like a Boat Ride

Life is like a boat ride, joys of joel writings, reflections about life and boat rides
Life is like a boat ride – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Life is like a boat ride. It comes in different boats and vessels.  Huge or small, in whatever shape or form.

It may come in golden moments just like that cruise on a beautiful sunset.  Memorable moments with screams and laughters just like that unforgettable banana boat ride.

Sometimes it scares you when you feel all alone in that small canoe,  in the middle of the vast ocean when storm is brewing and wave’s flashing.

There are times it gives you thrills as you reach your peak while you do that white water rafting, not alone but with a team who took risks, just like family sticking with you come hell or high water.

And no matter how big or small the boat you’re riding,  and how calm the weather is,  you still feel that bouncy bumpy moment, making you wonder why the ride is not smooth sailing when everything seems right.

Sometimes, even if you knew that it’s not a one dimensional journey when you thread on that deep unpredictable water, you still hop in because the boat is coming.

No amount of nausea inducing ride can stop you from trying the ride. Deep inside, you believe you can always adjust the sails because you are the captain.

And  if sometimes life makes you feel you’re just a passenger, you still hold on to that rail.  Clutching your bag of prayers, hoping that the captain will steer it right, believing that nothing is really hopeless.

No time to stand, wait and hope that another boat is coming.  You jump, dive in and swim with faith as your life vest and hope as your anchor.

It doesn’t really matter this time if you know how to swim.  What matters is you know how to find your way.  This time you knew that when the sea gets rough, you don’t look at the water swirling around you.  It will only make you feel worse and scare you more.

Just look at the horizon far away.  It’s the only stable thing when the ride is bumpy.  And that horizon will make you hold on because you deserve to be there.

And you will thank yourself for trying the boat ride. Because now you know the answer.

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 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 – 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.

Every Road Leads Somewhere

every road leads somewhere, an inspirational guide to life's lost souls, an inspirational writing about life's roads, choices by joys of joel poems
Every Road Leads Somewhere – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

One is never truly lost

Every road
leads somewhere

Even a blind alley
may lead you to a stairway
or a path undiscovered

As long as you keep moving,
you’ll later see
that a road
is about to be discovered

and a lesson is about to be learned.

Finger Puppets by Joel F

Finger Puppets and its benefits, joys of joel poems, what is finger puppets, daily post wordpress
Finger Puppets – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

“When you can’t verbalize your emotions,
just do it with your fingers.”
Joel F.

Finger lickin’ good and it’s not even a food.  Peruvian arts and crafts that would make your  fingers look good.

The Finger Puppets in assorted colors and designs at such a reasonable price caught my attention.  I bought more than a dozen and all gone for my friends. Such a great souvenir for people with kids.

These Finger Puppets are great in helping kids build their social skills. Also a great tool in expressing emotions. I’m not a kid but sometimes i’m so childish i need this thing.

When i can’t express my emotions, how i wish i got these finger puppets so i can just speak and speak and play like a kid. And if i fumble, everyone easily forgives because i’m just a kid.

How i miss those childhood days when playing with my fingers is always okay. 🙂
