Cast a wish to the wind on a blowing prayer
the silent toss of a seed set to grow somewhere—
its chance is slim that it will sprout,
but the seed has but little doubt,
unlike wishes which are so cast about
uncertain, forgotten, or simply left out.
Cast a wish to the wild, to the sky up above
send it with feeling, and send it with love,
cast a wish with the hope that yet it will grow
make a wish on the flower, then, gently, blow.
