2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 20

All right! We are 2/3 of the way through the challenge after today. Also, I'd like to thank Tammy for helping me post today's prompt. I'm actually dictating this to her over the phone while driving through Kentucky.


For today's prompt, write a message in a bottle poem. Imagine that your poem is being rolled up and put in a bottle for someone to read. Or if you want to come at it in a different way, think of it as a poem left in a time capsule or hidden away in your sock drawer. By the way, I would like to thank Nancy Posey for giving me the idea for today's prompt.

Here is my attempt:

"To Whoever Finds This"

I am not on a deserted island,
and I don't need help. I only wanted
to send a message out into the world.
I only wanted to say I love you.
