Beautiful Thinking

puts the heart in charge of the words
and like every ugly and misshapen baby
the heart makes it beautiful

the moon is a big round rock
a diamond is a small, shiny, hard rock
a tree is a vegetable with a hard trunk
a flower is a way to reproduce

a star is a sun far away
but the stars and the moon through the trees
and diamonds and flowers
have a special secret meaning known only to

all of us
