Glisten in the Shallows

by : Bacardi Gold

as i turn my head here and there
another spot of gift
exchanged greetings …

no one had stayed long enough to endure
the discomfort and injuries of anyone’s feet
nature’s sharp-edged rocks on the stretch

cool and lovely white sands to wade
glisten in the shallows of the distance

hidden under the nippy calm waters




by : Bacardi Gold


dive into the waters of the murky sky
gather the stars from the bottom of the ocean floor
empty the rivers to run dry
color in oil the flowers drawn in fashion

dream all the nightmares of the night
scatter the scenes in your slumberous sleep

be the knight hero as you snooze back into a trance
at peace with yourself as the soul rests to retire

scribble all the letters in the milky way
far apart they float in senseless drafts of ghosts
clothed in white as you near the gates of the graves
open wide your eyes as you comb your curly ash blond hair…
