sorting dreams

Could I sort these thoughts like clothes?

These harried emotions like socks?

And put them in their drawers

And never count the costs 


Of leaving loves behind.

Of carving out new dreams

And being so surprised 

At the common, precious things.


Could I put them in their places

Color-code, alphabetize

My mind into some palatable

Practical exercise?


To drench the world in color

To name distinctive trails

Land marked with faith and wonders

And never fear to fail?


Oh, Father, give me courage!

And, Lover of my soul,

Lead me wherever You wish me

[But, let there be waterfalls!]
