One Single Impression: Gold

This poem was inspired by the prompt from onesingleimpression at
I still have the experimental mindset inspired by readwritepoem which inspired my poem In the City.

Girl on the Beach

She was golden,
gliding across golden sand;
the sun glinted on her skin,
gilded and glistening.

In the waves, she hears the whispers
"you are beautiful"
"you are beautiful"
She lays down in the sand,
a golden corpse,
a skeleton without reason.

She could suck up the whole ocean

and still be empty.

She drowns in water
the sun painted gold,
a melting idol
a forgotten god.


  1. Very nice imagery in your work here. A nice play of words between the girl and the sun.

  2. lena...girl on the beach is a heartbreaker

  4. Incredible. If only she felt alive for herself.
