elements of the heART

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

tessellating, spreading,

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.
