She sent a message in a bottle into the sea
And watched the waves move it away
Into the horizon, beneath the visiting Sun,
The sight she could not bear without passion.
She spoke a song into the ether
And saw it fall into the water,
deeper into the vale of abyss
as she was panting with longings.
Then, long afterward, in quicksands
on shore washed up by the memories,
She found the bottle with two messages
sealed with a lover’s song in his words.
