I wonder if a poem counts for this challenge? Hope so.

How many years?
How many tides?
Washed up on the shores of forever.

How many wishes?
How many had died?
Wrapped up in a whisper of paper.

Too long ago,
Forgotten and yet
This visual memory lingers.

Can it be seen?
Will it be found
And be opened with inquisitive fingers.

A warning too late
If truth be told,
Tossed into a sea of madness.

Souls lost in the wind
Minds ne’er to grow old,
A reminder of eons of sadness.

Nay, let it lie,
Discarded on the sand,
Unread, this scroll trapped in glass.

Never to know,
Or try to understand
What was written all those years past.
