Big Dreams
by Deborah Russell

she wants butterflys
and a window
and maybe
a shelf with a vase of flowers
painted on the wall,
above her sink,
in her small kitchen space
with a table
and two chairs
her room is a pink zoo
for soft fuzzy animals
frilly, fluffy, comfy and nice
her small white bed,
in the corner,
with pillows of big dreams

he wants sugar cubes,
carrots and apples,
small treats for Chauncey
he wants to ride
in the wind
with his new helmet
and riding boots, big enough
for his toes to wiggle
he has dreams to fish,
to ski, to run, jump,
climb and sail the seas
he wants to ride
in the big arena ~ outside
with butterflies and trees
