Gazing out on the horizon
As far as the eye can see,

It must be miles and miles
Before the sky appears to touch the sea,

A message in a bottle is tossed by my hand
Hoping it will reach a new and distant land,

Riding the crest of waves to and fro
Like a pod of dolphins on the go,

Weathering storms with gale force winds
Staying intact while it spins,

At last it reaches it’s destination
Waiting to be discovered without hesitation!
