  3. I wonder if the butterflies don't, in fact, prevent tsunamis, with just a flutter of their wings!

  9. Lovely! So many great things going on with this one! Sound repetition between the first and third lines, nasal alliteration in the second, not to mention a nice symmetrical, wave-like structure to the second line - all well done! And of course the meaning is lovely, too. =)
