A Word, A Story: Oil Lamp

In the basement

I looked

And searched

An oil lamp


A magical

Oil lamp

From centuries ago

Passed on

To end up

In a tin can

In that basement

I searched

For my lost

Oil lamp

The story

Handed down:

At a moment

In the far away


This oil lamp

Should be rubbed

Someone will

Remind you

Of that oil lamp

It will be then

And only then

This oil lamp

Shall be rubbed

A magical


A genie

Will leach out

And embrace

You and all

A promise

From far back


In that basement

I looked

And I searched

Boxes after boxes

For a tin can

For a magical

Oil lamp…                2 be continued
