Little Things

I think I shall
take refuge in
my little dreams
of apes and frogs

little dreams of
big-eyed fish,
shedding tears never
seen underwater.

little dreams of
stands of trees
who whisper together
to protect me.

little dreams of
pools of color that
geyser happily
when I come to visit.

little dreams of
stars that know me
and of clouds that wave
as they pass by.

little dreams of
talking and
being heard when
I’m all alone.

little dreams that
I dream like birds
to wall out
the other dreams.

I think I shall
dream little dreams
of precious things
that love me.
