Island of the Lost

writing challenge: Nov 21, 2017

Prompt: Write about a lost object (I went a bit off topic)

There are many tales about an island of lost things- a place that somehow attracts the mislaid, misused, and misguided. People and things alike wash up upon shores made up of millions and billions of  the miscellaneous.

It’s a romantic notion- that all lost things will find a place. This fantastical island is a second start of sorts- a scrapper’s paradise where all the placeless find a place, the meaningless find meaning, the useless find a use and the hopeless find hope.

Perhaps that’s why there are so many tales of this place-

we want to believe that there is somewhere for everyone and everything.
