Coins In The Fountain #SoCS

Coins in the Fountain, joys of joel poems, for love or money poetry, how much is your love
Coins in the Fountain –

Throw in
a penny

So you
can be my honey

Do i need
to throw a nickel

So you can love
me a little?

Throw in
a dime

Why can’t you
be mine?

It baffles me

Why you
still ignore me

Can i be
your lover

if i throw in
a quarter?

you’re a riddle

and a very
pricey puzzle

Do you need
a dollar

or a love
that is stellar?

kiss me
with an answer

i am
your worthy beggar.

The Story Is Not Over Yet –

Staring at the blank moving wall,  now called wallpaper, memories keep flashing like a movie scene.   I’m still in a state of confusion as to what usually follows after finishing the sentence not with a period but with a colon that never belong to a conjunction of a subliminal past and paradoxical present.

i truly cannot understand why a tinge of justification was needed for that fleeting moment of indecision or bad judgment.  Nope, it is not to be judged,  i know in due time i will understand the truth.

The truth in not knowing the value of the moment until it became a memory.  That obsequious feeling of driving a wheel , disregarding the traffic rules inspite of  knowing that dangers will be waiting for breaking the stone that rocks the cradle.

The cradle that was all taken care of from infancy to puberty.  The adolescence of the mind brainwashing humans that ignorance is a bliss, until adulthood teaches you that it’s only a bliss if you take the risk.

The paradox of following your bliss believing that you can strive for anything.  Anything is possible,  even screaming sky is the limit.   You can have anything but not everything.  An oxymoron parable that sounds better than the aesop’s fable.

The fable that shows human  frailties using the art of narrating the pros and cons of an action with its lessons.  Realization of the long forgone wishes.  Pushing boundaries and eventually stepping over them.  The pursuit to fill your bucket list with the unending whispers that the story is not over yet but too late to edit the page.

Yes, the book was already printed,  but the story is not over yet.


****  You journey is always Unfinished.
