Daily Prompt: Lucky Star

Today is your lucky day. You get three wishes, granted to you by The Daily Post. What are your three wishes and why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WISHES.

Today’s daily post prompt is about wishes. We get three of them. Lucky us! Would I like some wishes to come true? Sure, who doesn’t? Today though I don’t think I’ll share what my wishes would be. A lady needs some secrets, it keeps the mystery alive. Ha!

Instead, I thought I’d dip my fingers into the realms of poems again. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking.

‘But Jackie! You don’t do poems, at least not very well.’

And you would be right! But, (there is always a but somewhere), but, if I don’t practice how am I to do better? Right? So guess what, you all will be my test audience. I thank you for participating. Ha! As if you have a choice.


Three wishes I put into a jar

I flung them in the ocean

And watched from afar

As they floated out towards distance shores

Where will they end, these wishes I wished

I have no clue, but I wished them the best

Maybe they will float to the end of the world

Where a stranger will see them and give them a whirl

He’ll open my jar that I threw long ago

Read my wishes and give them a go

For you see, my wishes that I wished

And stuck in that jar that fateful day

Were hopes and prayers for better ways

For the people of this world to smile and love

To give out their hugs and say

I found three wishes this day

They were in a jar from far away

This woman from distant shores

Gave her wishes to the ocean floors

To sweep them far and wide

So whoever found them could give them with pride

Those three wishes that were brought with the tide
