Albert Bierstadt, “The Golden Gate,” 1900 [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons
On the strange river of my mind
float golden vessels, unguarded,
sailing to places uncharted,
they glimmer, shimmer,
carrying words and dreams that brighten
then grow dimmer,
as waiting to dock
in an unknown land
filled with wondrous creatures
and glowing sand,
I wake and try to understand.
