My Big Dreams
sleep on the wings of saints.
They become vaporous
and airborne 
colliding with 
baptismal raindrops 
balancing themselves
on a million
patterned snowflakes 
to only then slip, slither
and snuggle
into the bosoms
of future white rosebuds.

Burning dreams
glitter in cahoots with Polaris
creating a brouhaha
loud enough to wake the dead.
Their dressing rooms
may be seen in the tunnels
of L. Frank Baum's
ebon cyclones 
or possibly meandering
between the fragmented lines
of a Lewis Carroll novel.

Carefree and capricious 
I see them
listening to the silence
near twilight;
secretly conversing
with rainbows at dawn.
Those precocious pixies 
seeing me laugh aloud
during unexpected sun showers;
as I gleefully observe
a smattering of umbrella-less fools 
being gloriously
splashed and plunked by

My Big Dreams.

    Oh my dear, sweet Mr. Heck, you have this girl crying like a baby. Somehow, you have gently, but firmly touched my mind to the place from which I pray, and written my thoughts of prayer. How did you do that? When I take my negative thoughts and discard them, I turn them into stardust and throw them into the heavens like your raindrops, snowfalkes and eventually, rosebuds. This is a gift beyond words, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and talent - this means so much, K
