Passing by Barra


Starry nights, smiling moon
Crawling creatures
Waves dancing
Rock, folk and Piper Blues



Smiling children, stray dogs
Hot pink flowers
Cloudless skies
Late, late nights, morning jogs

Recorded noise, street vendors
Half-built buildings
Spanglish signs
Sunrises, tired bartenders
