Chianti Dreams

I wrote my dreams on the back of a paper bag.
Stuffed them down inside an empty bottle of Chianti 
and threw it into the ocean.
The tide rolled it right back to me,
with words as wet as my eyes.

    Very effective image. Almost a Haiku effect here even though it doesn't use the Haiku syllable count. Cool.

    Yeah, I wasn't going for haiku...just a shorty. Glad you like it
