Only If You Let The Pigeons Fly – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

You clip their wings
the freedom it brings
Feed them crumbs
you forced them sing

A beautiful cage
is never their home
Their melodies
are never your song

What might have been
will never be
The flight of dreams
will set you free

As it speaks to you
and tell you why
your fears
are never their sky

Every night
you hear them chime
but you insist
they never rhyme

For you believe
they should be cage
For love is hate
when you are enslaved

The smiling sky
is yours for free
Awaiting you
its joys and glee

Only
If you let
the pigeons fly.

The Maze Race by Joel F

The Maze Race – — https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

I never thought that an old photo of a pre halloween fun day with my high schoolmates in california would make me smile and wonder.

The excitement of being a child again playing the maze race.

The confusion where to go and who to follow.
The whisperings that i seldom hear
when i’m too busy searching for the signs.

The distractions when i sometime stop
staring at that huge orange pumpkin
wondering why it’s only hugely appreciated
during halloweens.

I do get lost sometimes
not because i don’t read the signs,
not because i don’t listen and see,

Yes, i do get lost
when my eyes are widely open
when the road is too clear
and the sky is too bright

because when you think
that everything is all right
you seldom find a way.

And most of the time
it is only when the doors are all closed
that i noticed the windows.

**Photo was taken while visiting my high schoolmates in California. They brought me to  Dell’Osso Family Farm  in Tracy for a wonderful game of racing through the biggest corn maze in the United States. I lost in the race but win priceless memories of bonding with my classmates and their kids. How time flies.

The Maze Race

the maze race, pumpkin,corn maze,  pumpkin race, memories

I never thought that an old photo of a pre halloween fun day with my high schoolmates in tracy california would make me smile and wonder.

The excitement of being a child again playing the maze race.

The confusion where to go and who to follow. The whisperings that i seldom hear when i’m too busy searching for the signs.

The distractions when i sometime stop , staring at that huge orange pumpkin and wondering why it’s only hugely appreciated during halloweens.

I do get lost sometimes, not because i don’t read the signs. Not because i don’t listen and see.

Yes, i do get lost when my eyes are widely open, when the road is too clear and the sky is too bright because when you think that everything is all right, you seldom find a way.

And most of the time it is only when the doors are all closed that i noticed the windows.
