*** Salt. Sand. And water.*** Rumen Shomov. Translated from Bulgarian Ludmila Verih

Salt. Sand. And water.
I’ll make a sea tonight for me
And I will swim beneath the stars,
I’ll ride on schooners and corvettes,
I’ll drink with one-eyed pirates rum,
And I’ll compete
in singing with the dolphins
I’ll send some messages in bottles
To all my loves unrealized…
I’ll settle for a while in a seashell
And on the morning if I’m strong enough
I’ll start creating my new land.
