Ironic
how love
can change
the speed of time

Just like an eagle
flying high
or a sand
slowly drifting
from your hand.

Instagram and My Apple Juice

Instagram and My Apple Juice
Thanks to Instragram,
your life is juicier
than my apple juice.

 

I was supposed to write about illusion then I glanced at my apple juice. Time might be the culprit why I can’t write a long story, but it doesn’t mean I can’t sum it up by thinking about Instagram.

I never complained why my life isn’t a picture perfect kingdom because some fruits taught me wisdom. And call me crazy when it made me smile that some people’s lives are juicier than mine. 🙂

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.

Crystal Clear – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Serenity captured by my lens
through a beautiful lake
enclosed by a snow covered mountain.

Nature whispering
its stillness
I now understood.

Questions being answered
calming my mind of thunder
and my pondering heart.

Finally, a moment discovering the answers
it’s all crystal clear now,
no whys no hows.

Choices By Joel F

choices, wisdom quote by joys of joel, joys of joel beautiful rhyming poems about life choices, discernment quotes
Choices – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

The hallway of darkness
will eventually lead you
to the light
but still,
it depends
on the door you take
and the battles you fight

Choices

How confusing
when darkness sets in.

Decisions

How blinding
when you see the light from a far.

Perceptions

How bizarre
when your heart is at war.

I Don’t Hate February

I don’t Hate February – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I don’t hate february,
it’s the only time
i buy flowers for me.

If a quote
speaks a thousand words,
then you can quote me.

And if flowers
can make one speechless,
let them speak in silence.

I’m supposed to write
something for valentines
the treasures of being together

Then i remember
you gave me artificial flowers
suddenly i changed my mind.

Life is Like a Boat Ride

Life is like a boat ride, joys of joel writings, reflections about life and boat rides
Life is like a boat ride – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Life is like a boat ride. It comes in different boats and vessels.  Huge or small, in whatever shape or form.

It may come in golden moments just like that cruise on a beautiful sunset.  Memorable moments with screams and laughters just like that unforgettable banana boat ride.

Sometimes it scares you when you feel all alone in that small canoe,  in the middle of the vast ocean when storm is brewing and wave’s flashing.

There are times it gives you thrills as you reach your peak while you do that white water rafting, not alone but with a team who took risks, just like family sticking with you come hell or high water.

And no matter how big or small the boat you’re riding,  and how calm the weather is,  you still feel that bouncy bumpy moment, making you wonder why the ride is not smooth sailing when everything seems right.

Sometimes, even if you knew that it’s not a one dimensional journey when you thread on that deep unpredictable water, you still hop in because the boat is coming.

No amount of nausea inducing ride can stop you from trying the ride. Deep inside, you believe you can always adjust the sails because you are the captain.

And  if sometimes life makes you feel you’re just a passenger, you still hold on to that rail.  Clutching your bag of prayers, hoping that the captain will steer it right, believing that nothing is really hopeless.

No time to stand, wait and hope that another boat is coming.  You jump, dive in and swim with faith as your life vest and hope as your anchor.

It doesn’t really matter this time if you know how to swim.  What matters is you know how to find your way.  This time you knew that when the sea gets rough, you don’t look at the water swirling around you.  It will only make you feel worse and scare you more.

Just look at the horizon far away.  It’s the only stable thing when the ride is bumpy.  And that horizon will make you hold on because you deserve to be there.

And you will thank yourself for trying the boat ride. Because now you know the answer.

Sleigh Bells Ring, Are You Listening

a christmas story by joys of joel, sleigh bells ring are you listening, reflections on christmas time, joys of jole poem
Sleigh Bells Ring, are You Listening – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I see the christmas lights and hear the yuletide carols.  I remember hiding under the mistletoe. The yesteryears of waiting for santa, expecting a gift eventhough i’ve been naughty, not nice.

I opened the beautifully wrapped gifts.  In excitement i ignore the intricate wrappings. I barely acknowledge the efforts taken in covering the precious presents. Sometimes i forget to give thanks not just for the gifts but for its beautiful wrappings.

Oh, christmas is just around the corner.  A time to be jolly and sleigh rides.  But what happens when Santa’s reindeers are missing because their antlers are used for decorating?  And yes when the sleigh bells started ringing, are you really listening or just hearing?

Although i admit i don’t live in winter wonderland, it doesn’t mean i can’t feel the cold snow and its breeze. But the happy lights of yuletide lanterns and strangers’ smiling faces can make me say,  indeed it’s a beautiful happy sight.

One need  not wait for christmas day,  loving and sharing is not just for a day.  It’s all year through for someone with a giving and grateful heart.   But every year,  i don’t know why i am more kind,  when the christmas bells are starting to chime.
