Window Shopping At Its Peak

Winodw Shopping At Its Peak – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I wonder why I have few photos in any shopping malls i’ve been to.

Let me guess.  All of them almost look the same?  Nope not really.  Every shopping mall is distinctive in its own way.  Each one has its own unique ambiance and feel.

Now I know why I have such a few shopping mall photos.  It’s  because i’m not really a shopaholic or a shopping diva.  I get an orgasmic feeling (oops, pardon my words) in visiting museums or dropping by in flea markets.

I’m such a cheapskate when it comes to splurge shopping but it doesn’t mean I don’t get excited everytime i hopped in a mall.

It still offers a variety of experience:

– the excitement of letting my fingers run through a mountain of color coded items during the rummage sale and ending up not buying a single thing. 


(This is not intentional. I’m not here to give store people a hellish experience.  It happened just once,  nope, just twice,  alright, i admit several times but i do buy when i see something i like.)

– the smile in my face when i see an artful window display.

(Artful equals tasteful equals vulgar equals obscene equals tacky,  anything catchy.  Taste is subjective)

–  the hedonistic pleasure I derived from watching people as I sit on the bench pretending to be waiting for someone when in fact i’m just sitting because i don’t have a single cent to spend on that too good to be true discounted signature items splashed all over the mall.                                                              

(Did you see that va vaboom lady carrying a handful of  LV’s with her daddy?  I’m not being bitter here.  Envy is a green eyed monster,  jealousy is blue, my eyes are neither of the two)

–and that endless rebuttal with a friend proving my point that yes he is really her daddy, not the kind of thing that causes diabetes.  Until someone nearby butts in telling us to mind our own business.  Priceless!

 (Look who’s talking, unwanted eavesdropper, if only I could tell her to mind her own business too.)

There are things that money can’t buy.   Cliche as it may sound, the best things in life are still free.

Broken by Joel F

why am i broken, broken heart quote, joys of joel poem, wizard of oz quote
Broken – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

After a movie marathon of old classic films. I decided to watch Dorothy again in the classic Wizard of Oz.

Why is it that i always remember movie lines about love?   Broken heart, broken dreams and a lot of broken things.

Nope i’m not broken now , i’m whole but not complete.   And i’m okay this way.

Why?  Don’t ask me please, or you might break my heart once you start asking.

I don’t want to flag my brain with too many questions that leave me speechless.

Besides, i don’t want to open my mouth and validate that truthful line once said by the scarecrow:

           ” I don’t know,  but some people without brains do an awful lot of  talking, don’t they?”

And sometimes i’m one of them.

Thank You For Calling By Joel F

Thank You For Calling, a poem about love, family support, joys of joel quotes , poems
Thank You For Calling – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

If my heart is broken
and the screen is frozen

Will you troubleshoot it
and refresh its settings

Or should i find someone else
because upgrading is an option?

They say just ‘Fake it ’til you make it’
But i know it is never easy to pay

A leasing heart
that is not meant to stay

So I look up for a plan
when my feelings go astray

I turned around for some support
some kind of care through all those calls

From my friends and family
those times i felt alone when you left me

I say to them Thank You For Calling
felt relieved someone is listening

Although the pain is still staying
At least not everyone is leaving.

Crumpled Ribbons By Joel F

poem about gratitude, joys of joel poems, crumpled ribbons, rhyming poem
Crumpled Ribbons – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Crumpled or wrinkled
that’s how you made me feel

When i stumble and been humbled
by the lessons of your will.

Rainbows and roses
wisdom and its thorn

Poetry and proses
i can write after the storm.

Pretty laces or crumpled ribbons
tied to a bow of hopeful reasons

Now i’m grateful and feel blissful
The gift of life in changing seasons.

Are You The Lady, The Man or The Child

Are You The Lady, The Man or The Child – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

A lady is walking in the forest,
and saw a beautiful silver daisy.
This can’t be a daisy.
There’s no silver daisy.

A man is walking on the beach
and saw a shiny silver apple.
This is a shiny apple.
I wish it’s a gold apple.

A child is walking on the street
and saw a big gold elephant.
The elephant is here.
I want to ride the elephant.

Which one is me?
Sometimes i’m the lady,
most of the time i’m the man
although deep inside i wish
i will always be that kid.
