A Message in a Bottle


#MiracleChallenge : Week – 11

Challenge No : 4

Write a Story/ Poem using Prompt Theme –


You write it down
And cast it far away,
Hoping someone will find it
Somewhere in the sea of words,
In the atmosphere of versed clouds.

It often starts simply
With an image, a memory,
An emotion long forgotten,
Turning soon into something more,
Fictional but true.

You bare your soul,
And offer pieces of your mind.
Sometimes the feeling’s good,
Inspiration like a warm hug,
Other times it makes you weep,
Art born from pain once felt.

And you write on,
Cry out your poetry in silence,
Each letter a scream,
Each word laughter,
And you cast it in the air
For someone to find and read –
Your message in a bottle.

  1. Very pretty and cathartic I suppose, to write it all out and fling it a far as we can. You captured it eloquently.

    Somewhere in the sea of words,
    In the atmosphere of versed clouds…stuff like this draws us and makes us delve further.

  3. There is something magic about giving someone something as special as an unexpected message, I used to send these off when i went on holiday every year, never ever got a response…maybe one day though.
