He wants it all,

every speck of savings,

counted out in pennies.


“I’m touring the world,

one fountain the next,

until I run out of wishes.”

Sorry Daily Prompt,Daily Prompt, but I don’t seem to be able to remember any of those wishes that I made.

  5. You’re not the only one that forgot what they wished for after tossing pennies into the fountain.

    Hmmm…I wonder if any of them came true?

    • I wonder that as well, but then I get frustrated that I can’t remember and just shrug it off. They were probably quite trivial like “I hope I get a good grade on this essay” and other such stuff that just requires working at.
