Impossible Possibilities

BY NANCY TABER

I am 

a peppery wicked witch 
with 
tingling purple eyes 
and
a dragon hummingbird
flying by my side.

I am 

a zesty pair of overalls
in 
an emerald rocking chair 
with
motes and mermaid fireflies 
dancing on the air.

I am 

cartwheeling
clawing
scraping 
scratching
falling
soaring
roaring

I am 

I am 

I am

all these things
and more.
