NaPoWriMo Day 6

NaPoWriMo Day 6! The prompt was to write about the possible, the ifs, coulds, shoulds and woulds of the world. Here’s my take on it! Happy Reading!

6th April
What If
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if
I selected the ideal ink— Sepia yet dark enough to convey what I wished to say
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if
I handpicked the perfect parchment— Thin yet heavy enough to carry the weight of words
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if
I found a bottle beyond compare— miniature yet spacious enough to hold all these emotions
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if
I walked to the serenest sea— Powerful to surge across yet gentle enough to cradle my heart
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if
I set it free— the paper, the ink and the bottle — Into this sea?
Would it reach the one dearest to me?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
