don’t u 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 u wish u had a blanket of warm thoughts?
shapes of words in rhythm
wrapping u in delightful dreams.
shapes, poems… quilt.
don’t u wish your windows were made of diamonds?
prisms that reflect the way you see life
into many brilliant colors.
colors, reflections… kaleidoscope.
don’t u 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 u 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.
