THE BOTTLE ON THE SHORE
Having sailed across the seven seas,
It was finally washed ashore;
A little rusty, a little old,
But elegant still with the caress of ages.
I opened up the corked up bottle,
To be welcomed by a whiff of nostalgia;
The familiar scents of a forgotten age
Wafted through the air, into me.
I took a sip, a taste, a gulp,
And let it colour my thirsty palate;
A little sour, a little sweet,
Its hypnotic pull lingered on me.
Too early, too soon, it was emptied;
Its entrancing taste remained but, memories;
The empty bottle I set afloat once more,
To land up in another time, on another shore...
