do you have any pets?

Small beliefs I had when I was young:
the sky is blue because it reflects the ocean. Wishes are blue because they come from the bottom of your heart, where your secrets are.
A watched pot never boils. A good love is the faith that you don’t have to watch them closely; they love you and will love you without you worrying.
Bad things come in threes; good things follow if you just shift the leaves.
Stepping on cracks breaks your mother’s back. You can tell how many people love their mother because when you whisper that, their feet dance for hours after. Just in case, we skip to avoid hurting her.
A buttercup will show if you love butter. I make flower crowns when I am sad to remind the sun I cannot feel but I miss her warmth. She sits in halos of dandelions around the heads of people I weave dreams for. Kindness tastes like flower petals.
Let go if you love somebody; if it’s returned they’ll come running. I know this because when I call my dog, the forest calls too, but he comes home like good dogs do.
