Message in a bottle

Last week, Hanna tagged me with the Message In A Bottle Meme. I haven't done one of these properly (as in obeying all the stated rules) in quite some time, so I thought I'd partake with an added twist.

The meme got its start at Mimi Writes, and requires a little creativity and photo editing software ... both of which I have. Mimi provides a blank picture of a bottle on a beach, and you just need to come up with a message to inscribe on it. You can ogle my mishmash of a missive on the right.

Needing to find inspiration for new poems wherever I can, I also wrote an extended version of my "message in a bottle" that I'll be posting above. Augmenting your experience even more, I'm going to include an original sketch as well.

The rules require that I tag at least five other bloggers. I'm always a bit conflicted about foisting work on others, but I justify it as a way to recognize my favorite sites. So, here are my lucky victims:
If you'd like to participate, you can get the blank image and the full list of rules from Mimi's original post. There are some detailed procedures to follow on her site if you'd like your message included with those of the other participants. It may seem a little complicated, but no one said blogging was going to be easy.
