Poem: "Message in a Bottle"

Message in a Bottle
By: Eve Estelle

Old and outdated,
Rarely seen anymore -
Messages in bottles,
Washing up on the shore.

Written by a stranger,
Cast out to sea;
No destination set -
Untethered and free.
Drifting along
The wild tides,
'Till land it encounters,
And in sand it resides.

Inside a simple greeting,
Or a stranger's tale,
Who knows where it'll go
When the bottle sets sail.

  1. I love this! It's so beautiful.

    My family's going to the beach soon. Maybe we should do this. Could be fun. :)

    1. Oh, you totally should! That would be so cool, I think! ^^ Wonder how hard it is to make sure it doesn't float right back to your own shore?

      Thanks so much, Ashley!

    1. Exactly. I think it'd be neat to stumble upon some stranger's message in a bottle! Who knows what would be inside?

  4. Awesome poem! You put words together in such a lovely way! I kept thinking as I read this how perfect it would be if someone found a bottle washed up on the beach with this poem inside. : )

    I'm a new follower of your blog, by the way, so hi!

    1. Wow, Seema, I'm sorry lol. Totally thought I had replied to your comment here! But thank you. I don't think that's silly at all. :) I know I'd love to find one of these myself. I'm sure whoever found yours (and most likely somebody found it - even if it washed back onto the same shore!) thought it was a fun find.
