My Three Wishes

by Zoe Hairston

Three wishes
The first
A color
As bright as the sun
As soothing as the moon
As peaceful as the waves
A color
To catch every eye
To brighten the worst of days
A color to leave you wondering

Wish two:
The most beautiful silence
Only the sound of brilliant minds
Only the tick of the clock
Only the sound of the clouds scraping the sky
Only the sound of the chimes
Only the sound of my breath
Only the sound of my thoughts

The color lighting up my eyes
Reflecting across the room
The sound of the clouds
And the clock
The chimes
And my thoughts

Wish three:
A canvas to color
