Message In The Bottle



The words for this week are:

Approach
Bottle
Smooth


He guided the boat along the shore
His small hands slicing through the smooth water of the river
And as he approaches nearer to the dock
His attention was caught by a glint from the sun

Close inspection reveals a bottle
That appears to have traveled far
Its body bears marks sustained through the years
Its once attractive design now hides behind grime

I expected a great plea, a declaration of love
Some message that will touch one’s heart
But I was surprised and my face broke into a smile
The message says, “Two doughnuts for the price of one.”

What an amusing ending -- if I was going to put a message in a bottle and set it afloat, I think it would be something "frivolous" like that too!!

LOL

That's great :) I've always wanted to put a message in a bottle, and I almost think I like that one better than something deeper. Because sometimes we all need a reminder to laugh at life.
