Message in a bottle


For Poets and Storytellers United





I have been writing little poems for birthdays.
They aren't all ready yet.
I found these gorgeous message
in a bottle thingies and handed over
the first poem in the bottle to a motorbike
friend of my husband who celebrated his 65th birthday.
Hope I can still buy more of them.
Aren't they gorgeous



 I printed out the following and put it in the bottle. Nigel read it back to me and he loved it

  7. What a beautiful gift! And an excellent idea. My husband and I gave our friends and family wee messages in a bottle as mementos when we married. I love when I see them on their mantels. And I hope they do, too.

    "Unlock your doors
    Open your windows
    and let life inside"

    Are some of my favorite lines.

  9. The concluding sentence of the birthday poem for Nigel is a big Truth we cannot ignore:" Life is a gift so live it without limitations".
