Wishing Well

By: Shyanne Sarris

In the season of chestnuts

And muddy leaves, 

In a park in Stuttgart, Germany

An architecture for liquid –

A water fountain flows,

Carrying the wishes 

Of things its known.

Yes, leaves, and chestnuts

Euros and pennies

All pay the price of 

Hopes and Dreams

But what is the currency of wishes?

Is a leaf as great as a penny?

Does a chestnut tossed in by a tree

Hold as much weight 

As tears rippling a reflection?

How does the wishing well decide,

To choose if a wish

 should be granted 

Or set aside?
