There was a big commotion

in the ocean

underneath the fake devotion

until someone got the notion

to invent a magic potion

that would stir the right emotion

so the heart could beat again

    1. Thank you Gabrielle, both for liking this poem and for being a bird lover too who wrote something for me that is all sorts of wonderful HUGS 🙂

  1. Maybe it’s not what you intended or had in mind, but this made me think of evolution, and if there’s one thing I love, it’s poems about evolution. The rhythm and flow are great, too.

    1. When I wrote this I had nothing in my mind by empty space Tel, but your spin on it’s meaning is interesting and I’ve thought about it quite a bit since you left this comment. It is a sort of evolution if read that way and I like that perspective. 🙂
