Espana clamours at me

In its warmth, and dazzle, and power

I listen , bemused. –  half catch my breath

As cadences descend like jewels in a waterfall


With a clatter of smiles and welcomes

‘Hola ! Señora……’

And in a soft stillness waiting

For my hesitant response


Like a kaleidoscope

The pigeons wheeling in the blue air

Over the Placa

In flickering sunlight ; blowing leaves


And boys’ voices echo

Traffic hums

By the azure sea, Mare Mediterranean

Mi corazon , es mmusica
