Someone Must Hide Treasure

Pen in hand, she paused, melted back into the rocker and closed her eyes. Daytime said goodnight a while ago. Another poem written, posted and stored in the flat 8” cyber box. Like Mary Poppins bottomless bag, she could pull one out at will, but so many sat still, untouched for years. She recalled the initial suggestion, to start writing poems, and she smiled, amused at her instant obedience of such an uncanny request.

The urgency to meet a deadline all to fall silent after.

  6. Oh I hope someone finds it… in the end, I wonder how many unpublished treasures there are in attics and basements.
