Many thanks to +maricris cabrera
for this prompt. It was an interesting one, the more I awaken my creativity I realize how amazing the journey is in creating a piece. I enjoy your work too !
Mines is a bottle, no genie
Mines is on layaway
The cost for reading messages washed ashore
Is one too daunting and expensive for me
This yellow sheet has me thinking that I..
Have I? Have I met my fate.
I make out a classroom in my imagination
Place the title to the left, date on the right
I looked to the right of the sky
But the sun ceased in telling time or date
These waves are creating more imagery
These pebbles are giving me false reassurance
Harmony of waves to pebbles
Can't be the same as me to this bottle and this note
Why. Somebody ask me why I had to be here
Why me when this bottle washed ashore
How comes my eyes weren't busy some place else
Wait. Do you think this could be the reply from grandpa
Yeah that letter I sent him while he was at sea
Nah. Maybe the one I sent to Corduroy
Probably part of his fan mail Lisa forgot to read
Or maybe it's that thesis I wrote barbie
On the false promise of intact limbs at 7
Nah. It's probably from somebody anonymous
Hoping, yes.. hoping to scare me
It worked. It did not!
Alright let's take out this cork
Pull the yellow note open
Actually retrace your steps, put that note back
Put the cork back in and lay it on the pebbles
I don't know whose tentacles and barnacles
Shimmied on this bottle
Leave it alone!
Just keep it as one of life's mysteries
This one's a bottle? Yes genie.
