Love Letter to an Inanimate Object. No6

Dear Watch.
I love you, you gorgeous thing.
I know you are just an ordinary watch really.
I love you though.

I love your blackness and the roundness of your face. I love your chunky shape and the seconds that tick down on your face. I love that you can tell me the tides and in that way keep me connected to the sea.

We are together every day you and I, aren’t we? I don’t feel dressed until I have strapped you to my wrist. I don’t feel right on those rare days when I forget you. I’m grateful that you alarm every hour and thus remind me to be mindful.

 I hope you appreciate that I love you and in some way notice that I keep you clean and care for you.

Me xxx
