Daily Prompt: SOS/Water

Standard

You’re at the beach, lounging on your towel, when a glistening object at the water’s edge catches your eye. It’s a bottle — and yes, it contains a message. What does it say?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WATER.

There’s the Message in the bottle:

Please find my family, Tell my wife, Iva, I love her and I always will; my son, Sammy, he can be brave and strong and I’m always looking out on the them. I’m sorry for not being there, but I’ll always be in their hearts. Don’t trust Frank, he’s the one who did this to me, he is taking me from you, and has turned his back on everything good in this world. This was written in April of 1940. Thank you to who ever finds this, I hope you can get this to my family, please give them a hug for me. Signed-  SGT Joe Hunter”

And here’s a poem (the two have nothing to do with the other):

Ocean Side

I sit along the water’s edge,

Watching the waves crash,

The smell of salt water fills the air,

The wind blows softly,

Causing my hair to caresses my face,

And chills run up my spine,

Water reaches out to me,

As another wave hits the sand,

Blue and green is the water,

Yet as the sunsets on the horizon,

Red, purple, pink, and orange,

 Shine in the sky and reflexes off the water,

White and blue are the waves,

As they seem to race towards me,

Water mist sprays in my face,

I can taste the salt on my lips,

The sound of the ocean,

Calming and peaceful as it sways with the wind,

Yet also almost angry when the waves collide,

Waves that seemed to control the ocean top,

Bigger ones over powering the smaller ones,

The ones further out seem so big and powerful,

Yet as it gets closer it’s powerful at times,

But also so giving and inviting,

As if calling out to me to join in their play,

 Dolphins jump in the distance,

I can faintly hear them playfully call out,

Seagulls fly above searching for their meal below,

I look up to the sky and see the moon,

Big and white as it begins to shine,

I move back a little ways,

As the waters try to reach for me again,

Behind me a little ways are trees,

Trees that lead up to a mountain,

Mountain that has a river running through it,

Through it and into the ocean,

To my left I see an older couple,

Holding hands as they walk along the beach,

I smile at the sight,

A blanket is placed around my shoulders,

I look up to see my Love,

He smiles and sits down beside me,

Our little one curled up in his arms sleeping,

Another wave crashes on the shore,

My heart beats move,

As I take in this moment,

Seeing the beauty that God has created,

And the beauty and love he has Blessed me with,

I lean and rest my head on his shoulder,

Closing my eyes I capture this moment,

This special moment,

Where everything seems perfect.
