The Change Purse

Watching as the wishing well

Gets filled with hopes and dreams

A penny for the mundane

A quarter for the extreme

Step up to the fountain

Payment in hand

Close your eyes and concentrate 

As hard as you can

Focus on your desire

Set your sights high

Drop it into the crystal waters

Where all the other wishes lie

Smile and walk away

Your craving has been set free

Along with all the longings of others

In the bank of believe

  1. This reminds me of a song, “Counting stars”. One Republic, if memory servers me well. It’d be nice to count stars and wishes instead of money. Oh well. Your poem is awesome though 😊
