don’t you wish fireworks didn’t just vanish in the sky?
instead, they would trickle down to your outstretched arms
as tiny bits of paper fluttering in mid-air
through the spaces between your fingers.
lines, thoughts… confetti.
don’t you wish you had a blanket of warm thoughts?
shapes of words in rhythm
wrapping you in delightful dreams.
shapes, poems… quilt.
don’t you wish your windows were made of diamonds?
prisms that reflect the way you see life
into many brilliant colors.
colors, reflections… kaleidoscope.
don’t you wish that it was safe to walk barefoot all through life?
a chance to feel the textures of experiences
through your soles and into your soul.
textures, experiences… collage.
don’t you wish bits and pieces of what-have-u’s
fit together to fill the spaces in your heart?
a map that reveals paths within a memorable tale.
spaces, stories… mosaic.
