What Do You Remember In October

What Do You Remember In October – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I don’t know how to make it rhyme
when October is starting to chime.

For there are things
that I always remember
when it is October.

Those childhood days
when my teachers made me recite
all the different mysteries
in the weeks of Rosaries.

And although I love candies
I never really like
knocking on people’s doors
begging for some sweeties.

And as I grow older
October showed me its colors
when Halloween was a part
of ghostly and unforgettable horrors.

‘Though I won’t say it is the best
I did enjoy Oktober Fest
the beers are flowing endlessly
when adolescence has taken me breathlessly.

October is not just color orange
for the pumpkin and the black witches
I remember the pink ribbon
I sometimes wear on my chest

And sometimes I really wonder
why the Breast Cancer Awareness Month
coincides with Oktober Fest
Is it because my chest hurt so much
when beers in can are my breakfast and lunch?

But if there’s one thing
that I will always remember
in the beautiful month of October

I wish I will not remember
that I am not getting any younger.

How about you,
what do you remember in October?

Sun shines
rain drops

Blue clouds
on summertime

Flowers bloom
despite the gloom

Is it typical
or magical

When sun sets
with golden hues

Reminding you
tomorrow’s news

Will be
in a treasured chest

Of memories
you won’t forget.

And when he said
he’s leaving now

You realized
it’s typical

For sunrise
to say hello

and say goodbye
with purple glow.

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.

Don’t Ask Me If I Remember You

Don't Ask Me If I Remember You, a poem about love and betrayal, joys of joel rhyming poems
Don’t Ask Me If I Remember You – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

 

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

I hear you
on the other line
while i see
the postman
outside the window.

The postcards
you sent on time
The letters
i dared to hide

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

I couldn’t
dare to speak
while i stare
at the angel
in my bed

“Hey, im back in town
you still remember me?”

I put the phone down
because
i remember you
all the time.

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.
