Close Your Eyes


let your inner child

hear the sound of

Santa’s sleigh bell


go back to the last

birthday in which you

blew out candles


rub the copper penny

between your fingers

flip it into the fountain


blow the wishie

send the white-

whisper seeds to

the sky unbounded


sit in the patch

of clover and search

for the one with

four leaf-parts


lie back

in the grass

and send your

heart’s desire

to the Northern Star


take a break from reality

go back to that time and place

you have creative license

if you need to add or erase


you’re never too old

to return or start

it’s closer than you think

just close your eyes and

let yourself


wish, believe, dream
