Travel theme: Poetry

This week’s blog topic – Travel theme: Poetry

 

I found a bottle on the seashore and took it home with me.

Message in a bottle
Inside the bottle, a message furled – I couldn’t wait to see.

Was it about illicit love
or unrequited passion?
Did it contain some history
of some important fashion?

Was some poor soul alone and lost
and waiting for an answer
Or was it just the impish prank
of some coy necromancer?

The time had come to end the doubt and see what was inside,
I held my breath and pulled the cork that salt and sun had dried.
I held the paper, brown and old:
The words I read with ease;

My lofty dreams came crashing down with…

“Milko, 2 pints please”!

old fashioned milkman - England
