A Hip Wild Rose

 A Hip Wild Rose 

I want to become

A wearer of striped leggings

And purple high tops 

I want to become

A graffiti tricycle  

speeder – ding, ding,ding

I want to become 

a wildflower thief

snipping stems for free

I want to become 

a drinker of herbal tea

steeped in wild rose hips 

I want to become

a crazy dog lady 

with twelve dozen dogs 

I want to become 

a sporter of whimsical 

hats of all patterns 

I want to become 

a spunky retiree,

unpredictable 

For now I am a 

wearer of matching outfits

nothing too offbeat 

For now I am a 

county square pedestrian 

staying in the lines 

For now I am a 

colorless cubiclemate

minus the flowers 

For now I am a 

morning decaf coffee fan

never branching out 

For now I am a 

rescue Schnoodle/Schnauzer mom 

just these two enough 

For now I am a 

hatless day jobber

compliant and safe 

I want to become

the dreamer I’ve always been

when I’ve dared to dream.
