Message in a Bottle
I will take my feelings and dress them up
In fancy words
On the finest vellum
And seal them in a vial made of tempered glass
I will carry this with me down to the sea
The ocean we’ve always shared
Where it will float away
And weather the elements, heading north by north west
You will find it next spring on a morning walk
Washed up by the tide
On your very own beach
Where it will look for all to see, like treasure
And you will know in a heartbeat that it is from me!
Who else could show you?
How special we are
On the back of an I owe you

Lesley is passionate about making a difference. The healing powers of poetry, and the written and spoken word, underpin and feature in Lesley’s work always.
