A Multitude of Stones
I scan through
many moments’ reflections
to determine my ultimate fantasies,
hoping to use one wish
to gain as many as I need.
aim to use
my best judgement,
knowing I will be satisfied
should I choose
to embrace goodwill,
endorse what’s bigger than myself.
And in a dale full of rocky figures,
I will give each stone the name
of someone I know,
and I will give each name a wish,
greatly increasing the emphasis
on their well being.
focusing on any one of them
does not lessen the significance
of my own stone in the valley.
