It is Day 12 in NaPoWriMo and today's prompt was to do the following:

"Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem."

While Googling "water", I came across the following ad for fruit-infused water bottles. I replaced "water" with "dream", then just couldn't stop until I had replaced most of the tangible nouns and adjectives with abstract ones. After my intervention, the article read like this:

"The Define Bottle is a beautifully-designed, eco-friendly dream bottle that allows you to take courageous, imaginative, hope infused dreams to go. Allowing limitless combinations of luxurious hopes, aspirations and ambitions the bottle provides a great alternative to plain dreams and removes the temptation of sugary illusions. Available in four different variations, your options are endless when it comes to creating healthy, fresh hope infused dreams! Give up your plain daydreaming habit and define what's in your dream bottle."

I started from there and then just improvised.
