Let’s Make Waves

and a hundred other things
worth more than money:
love, a wish,
amends, be

Let’s break some laws –
gravity and others,
and Murphy and
his friends.

Let’s throw something
besides these tired stones;
a party, maybe
or caution
…….to the wind.

Let’s swirl-toe in some in
-digo –

and see
what spill of cresc-end
-oh! we’re supposed to be.

    Oh, indeed let’s throw a party to the wind, and making a wish instead of waves sounds like a better choice. Smiles.

    Let’s break some laws – ha, that was rather the ramp up point in this for me. Love what you did with in-digo light as well. Nice crescend-OH as well. There is a heat there.
