If I could, I would peel
the sun from the sky
and place it in the
sticker book of my heart –

I would collect
bird chirps and Aspen leaf rustles,
rubber bike tires on asphalt,
rain on the tin roof of the carport,
yellow dandelion lipstick
and “wishies” floating on a breeze,
four leaf clover treasures,
the whoosh felt on the playset
swinging as high as possible.

I would collect a picturesque world,
stickers of perfect intent and beauty
where my heart was the sun
and I never stopped shining.
