*A Waltz Wave: Loaf of Bread


Loaf
of bread
makes
a song
of fragrance,
waiting
to
feed all
who hunger.
If only it
worked that way,
the world
could
be full
and hope would
waft on
winds
with bread
scent.

    Lillian, I love it! It is wonderful to read a Waltz Wave where I have not had to count the syllables.
    The fragrance and the three alliterated words waft winds with make for a great Waltz Wave. And there is a message in there too for the world. Some of the convicts that came to Australia from England in the early 1800's had only stolen a loaf of bread so they wouldn't starve. Well done!
