I want to find a poem about wishes. I am getting married and we are having a wish bowl for the guests to throw a penny into and make a wish for our marriage.

Toss a Coin in the Wishing Well

Toss a coin in the wishing well.
Silently speak your dream.
Hope on a nickel, a dime or a cent.
Wish for some magic, or something unseen;
a day picking strawberries spent at the shore...
wish for a journey through half-open doors.

Toss out the ugly.
Toss in the free.
Toss out the worry.
Then, curiously,
imagine tomorrow
scented with spice
and a cinnamon rose
and a wish granted twice.
Imagine a daydream
created in cloud
and covered in crimson
far from the crowd.

Toss a coin in the wishing well.
Throw a quarter to ripple...
in waters that tell
of intricate weaving
and delicate lace,
and the why you're believing
and the where of that place.

A dream in a fountain.
A dream on a dime.
A dream just deserving
of crystalline time.
