Of Paper Cups And Dreams

Talk to me
Of paper cups and dreams
Of brooks, rivers, clouds or chalkboards
Electrical sockets or grass
Mountain lakes and books
Tell me about
Baskets and blankets
Trees and old trunks
Clothes, jewelry,
And the stories of stars
Speak lightly
Of quilts and carpets
Rocks and brass buttons
Smoke and spirits, or
Kisses and vines
Teach me
To love living.
