Daily Prompt: Three Coins in the Fountain #postaday

Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true?

DSC_0550 We stand on the small bridge, looking at the river, and the old houses on its banks. The Saint is looking at us, in turn, with the benevolent and transparent gaze of the medieval world.

You say: “Here, I want to marry you before the end of the year.”

“We will,” I reply, holding your cold hands in mine. “Look!”

And I toss the little gröschen in the dark water: “We will.”

I know the Saint is smiling: as if saying that she will make sure of it. And we know: it is our faith, our love, our world. We belong here.


  1. I was just yesterday thinking about my wish, that I would return to the Trevi fountain with the love of my life – as you do. We haven’t even started planning our trip to Rome yet, but it’s on the to do list. There’s no hurry. Dreams have a way of coming true when you believe in them. I am your neighbour on the #atozchallenge linky list – see you round in April 🙂
