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.



Daily Prompt:  Someday

Nine Word Story

Nine Word Story – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

You cut them short when you don’t want to listen. You need a very short story. You said brevity is a word of the wise. But if wisdom is what you want, why does it take you so long to find the key that you thought you’re holding?

Is the key all you need or a map to some path you always wanted? You only need the key for the door but how will you find the door if you don’t know where to start your journey and which path to take?

All you see are beautiful flowers, because what you want is a beautiful garden. You’re always scared of the forest. The unknown frightens you. Did someone ever tell you that sometimes the most beautiful flowers are the forgotten ones in the secluded wilderness where a ray of sunshine is like water on desert.

You say they always give you a long story when what you really wanted was a brief poetry where rhythm and rhymes are all that matters.  So does it matter now that I can write you a nine word story, a very short one?

Like Raindrops on flowers
Your tears made you bloom.

Would that be enough or you need another story  because this time you realized that sometimes you also need a long story.

For now you know why it took a long time for them to bloom,  because they waited for raindrops and a ray of sunshine is not just what they need.

The Train is Coming

the train is coming, joys of joel poems,  a poem about fate and destiny, patience
The Train is Coming – – – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/


Suddenly a train  of thought touched me as i glance and peek at my via rail pic.  The poetry of the saying that the mind replays what the heart can’t delete.


Heading to somewhere

with no one in tow.

My backpack and myself

to a place i never know.


Nothing on hand

but a few things to keep at hand.

Expectations and tickets

to board that long rail tram.


Waiting for the sound

that serves as alarm.

The train is coming

get up and stop dreaming.


For once it stop

and you’re not all awake.

The moment will pass,

and again you’ll be waiting.


Better be aware

that they come on time,

for the train is coming

and in time

you must hop in.


but if  the train

did not stop

and the doors are all closed,

be patient and keep standing

soon the right train

will be coming.
