Packing Light


Packing Light

On a desert island, abandoned but alive,
with aids to my survival numbering only five,
I’d need a contraption to desalinate water.
Then a tent to sit under once the day got hotter.
But while I’m in the shade, a solar panel would be nice
to plug in my computer and also a device
to connect it to a satellite so I could Skype my friend
to send fast transportation to bring this to an end!

The Prompt––Five Items: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?

    Very interesting how electronics have replaced a good book. After all, there are millions of books available on the internet and so much more! I’m sure the island would have fish and wonderful fruit, so you wouldn’t need to pack any.
