Message in a Bottle


Ethereal, placid, meander, forget, silver

With pen and paper, I meander in my thought
Message in a bottle and hope they find it
To my secret love and all the things I jot
Things got to be released to get out of my wit

With my silver pen and a strip of paper
Like putting some apples in a wicker basket
All the deep emotion I come to stir
Answering the why, when, where and what

I can placidly write lists, stories and musing
The stone fell into the water with a soft plop
Waiting for something to happen or bring
I’ll drop it now, don’t make me stop

Instead of forming ethereal dust being untouched
Why not share what’s on my mind before I forget?
I quite like the idea being clutched
I guess I’ll do it coz I don’t want to fret

Everyone does it and what’s the fuss?
In the city where everyone is welcome
Perhaps one day we’ll be together as us
Seize the day or carpe diem

  1. “Perhaps one day we’ll be together as us…” I love the hint of hope in this. And it reminds me of Nicholas Sparks’ Message in a Bottle, too. Nicely done, Ladylee. ^^
