Signs

Unsure of which
way to turn
I hear;
lept lept
lept ri lept
lept lept
lept ri lept
faarwor march!
A school band
practising
in the distance
has all the
answers.

Dear Kaju Katli,

Amazing how the eyes jump to line one, microseconds after the last line has crafted a vision.

So true how something as simple as the school march, can "have all the answers".

"Unsure of which way to turn" I see you too, like the Paulo Coelho, heed your omens right.

Very visual, very unusual this one. Very, lets say, Nostalgic too.
