The Wishing Well

The challenge that I found on another site I belong to was to start the poem with She tossed the coin into wishing well for all to see.  The picture is of Calvary Temple in Modesto, one I use to attend and the story is true with some poetic licenses taken…

She tossed the coin into wishing well for all to see.
Three year old sticky hands carrying the faith of a child
And Innocent dreams.

She wore her Sunday best
A little ruffled dress
And a childhish smile
As she laughed with glee
Watching the coins gleam
In the water.

She tossed the coin into the wishing well for all to see
And smiled at me as she said
I am sending my wishes to Heaven
For Jesus to see.

I smiled at her as she threw
More pennies in
Said she had a lot of dreams
To send.
