Beyond Fences

beyond fences

go ahead
try it
or remember how it’s done
this puzzle’s been around for years
                    .     .     .
                    .     .     .
                    .     .     .

connect nine dots with four straight lines
although some manage three
don’t lift your pen or pencil
or you could use your thumb
there might just be a hint there
now that you’re back
from wandering beyond fences
consider the wisdom in a Jewish proverb
that if you face two action plans
you should always choose the third
pause there
more crickets
remember beyond fences
good luck
and take care
