when you visualize your dreams, what do you see?
i write easy poetry
have love forever like an endless sea
a sense of inner stability
a self that’s deeply free
"Ode to Friendship" by Noor Hindi Edgewater Beach, 2019 The night so warm I could fall in love with anything including myself. My loves. You are the only people I’d surrender my softness to. The moon so blue. And yes, what’s gold is gold. What’s real is us despite a country so grieved, so woke, so death. Our gloom as loud as shells. Listen. Even the ocean begs. Put your hands in the sand, my friend. It’s best we bury ourselves. What’s heavy. What’s heavy? Becomes light.
