>Is there a message? Writer’s Island #1


Gritty sand between my toes

Salt has formed creases in my skin

I have kept the bottle in my drawer

Vowing to never open it

Sometimes I think about it

And other times I try to disregard

The air smells fresh today

Serenity blows through my mind

I wonder is there something I have missed

It’s the bottle in my drawer

I should move it to a more suitable position

Where it can amass dust with the years

Just like my life …
