Love and All Its Hidden Meanings – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Wedding bells
will soon be ringing

Prenuptial papers
you hope he will be signing

But when he said
that love knows no limit

The winds of love
is slowly changing

In dictionaries
now you are searching

Love
and all its hidden meanings.

Abstract People by Joel F

abstract people, joys of joel beautiful poem, quote about relationships, dark poem about multiple personalities , emotional conflicts
Abstract People – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

The palette and
the brush

can never paint
the secret fountain

The wisdom
to comprehend

the flowing emotions
as high as a mountain

What you see
is what you get

but you can
never be certain

Once you meet
the abstract people

when you start
looking at the mirror

 

Abstract people. Have you met them?  Do you recognize them?  Do they ever bother you?  Do you understand them?

Understanding them is like viewing a painting.  Your interpretation is limited to your understanding.  Your understanding is limited to your truth.

Looking at the painting, how could you refute the visible signs of the brush if you’re only seeing the canvas? And how can you accept the beauty of its diverse colors if you hate to walk in shades of gray and live your life only in black and white?

And what is your truth? Is the sun your truth or the moon on a dark night? Is it the rainbow after the storm or the pot of gold after the rainbow? Is your truth your refuge when life is a curse or it becomes your oath when life is a gift?

Abstract people.   Most of the time,  you don’t understand them.  Sometimes, you are one of them.

Don’t Tell Me You Know Me

dont tell me you know me, joys of joel poems, life, beautiful poem, creative writings, daily prompt
Don’t Tell Me You Know Me – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

I count the syllables
to create a haiku

I created a rhyme
to write a poetry

I write my thoughts
so you’ll remember me

You remember my words,
but not my story

You touch
but never hold my hand

You sing
but never invited me to dance

Because you say
i knew you knew
who i am

How could it be
if you never understand
my story?

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.

Betrayal

quote about betrayal, joys of joel poems, , poem about betrayal
Betrayal – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

“Hello,
do you remember me?
I’m back in town.”

You hear it
on your mind
while you see
the sunset
outside the window.

The love
you never tried
The fears
that live inside

“Hey i’m back in town,
you still remember me?”

The what ifs
and could have been
The blooms
you could have seen

“Hey i’m back in town,
you still remember me?”

Your dreams
that dare to speak
when you betray
your heart
because of fear.

You close
the door now
but you remember it
all the time.

The Mask is Falling, A Halloween Story

The Mask is Falling, what do you see when the mask falls off, joys of joel writings,, halloween horror story, daily prompt,
The Mask is Falling – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

My friend ask me if i’ll be joining a halloween party. She says “I’ll be little red riding hood, what’s your costume?”

Scary thoughts suddenly creep. Do i really need to wear a costume? Am i not wearing this halloween mask all these years?

– Those moments i smile when deep inside i’m crying
– Those times i pretend i’m brave enough when my soul is scared

So numerous moments when i pretend to be someone i’m not. And no one notices because everyone is wearing their own masks.

And when the masquerade ball is inviting me to join and dance in its party, i welcome it unwittingly. And after leaving the masquerade ball, i’m no longer cautious if the mask will fall.

No matter how much one hold on to something, soon the mask will be falling. And sometimes when you look at the mirror, you don’t see the mask. You see what’s inside you.  But still you question in horror why a different face welcomes you every morning when you knew all along you’re alone after the party.

Still you dust if off and learn to move on.  Looking forward to the next masquerade ball.

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. 🙂

Blowing The Candles , My Birthday Greetings and Wishes

Blowing The Candles -My Birthday Greetings and Wishes – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

It’s been a year since i last blow my birthday candle and how time flies. The candle of hope for a bright tomorrow lighting up my birthday wishes.

I just celebrated my birthday two days ago. Yes, i’m a year older and wiser yet i have the same birthday prayers and wishes as always.

I wish that my family will be bless all year through with good health. I wish that my parents live long enough to see their great grandchildren. I wish that my brother and my sister in law to be always in good shape so they can hug their grandchildren. I wish that my nephews and niece to be always safe and healthy so they can live a full life and achieve their dreams.  And of course i wish to live happily ever after. 😉

I don’t know why, but through the years it seems like a personal tradition to slice my birthday cake and blow the candles.

I don’t really need to blow the candle this time.  All i need is to close my eyes and feel the light, be grateful for the treasures that i have, a great loving family i am so blessed to be with.

And when my birthday celebration has died down and everyone is done with their birthday greetings. I look at the leftover of my birthday cake with the missing candle, this time wishing something else not just for myself.

I wish that the missing candle will always serve as light.  Light when the world feel a certain darkness.

I have never imagine that i would be wishing something for the world on my birthday. My birthday wishes are always for myself and my family. But this time as i look at the world around me, my country and what’s happening beyond it, i wish for that two words that seem memorable only to beauty pageant patties…… world peace.

Yes, i wish for world peace. And i truly mean it.

Not only the kind of peace without gunfires and battles. But also the inner peace that comes within everyone. To be more kind and be more accepting of other people’s shortcomings and mistakes.

To win the battle against racism and bigotry. To be more open minded towards other people’s differences and culture. To be more understanding of other people’s religious beliefs. To be the candle that lights a dark path and show that even when the candle’s light was blown off, the splintered remaining wax will serve as a reminder that nothing in life was ever lost or wasted if it serves its purpose.

I know blowing the birthday candles doesn’t mean all dreams will be fulfilled, all wishes will come true.

Life isn’t a fairy tale.  There’s more to life than my birthday wishes.  And yes, sometimes wishes still ensnare me.
