size

i keep my dreams
small

compact enough
to slip easily
into pockets
carry them with me
between my heart’s
many destinations

yes, my dreams
are small
and simple
when regarded
individually

but the multitude
of them all together
is a thing
to be reckoned with

a stormcloud
upon close examination
is only droplets of water–

i mean for
my collection of
small dreams
to someday incite
thunder and lightning
