  • A fairy-tale made into reality, a land of dreams, Barcelona,
    Gaudi’s work, Barcelona;
    Surrealist buildings, urban constructs, I walk inside,
    I see the winding stairs hugging the edge of this dreaming portrait of a world that could be;
    Walk into rooms, mushroom shaped visions of a man’s hope,
    Catalonian ideals shaped in circles, symmetric shapes of lines criss-cross the path of smoke, Barcelona;
    Outside, peering skyward, slopes of stone architecture derived from diamond hands, Barcelona;
    Light coming through soft fabrics and curtains from window-pane, Barcelona;
    Faces of Knights skewed in beauty beside spider structures of nightmares, Barcelona;
    Sidewalk seats gleaming in the sunlight bringing rest to souls made un-weary by joy, Barcelona;
    Guell Palace…missile chimneys and layered love Gaudi designed out of respect, showing his rise to the heights, Barcelona;
    A park…Christmas views of candy lines by bare trees of open wisdom…old as life and all of you, Barcelona;
    Old relics, pieces of gold molded together beneath the sun, surrounded pits above sandy cobble of footsteps stepping…down, Barcelona;
    To me, Barcelona,
    Beneath Sagrada Familia, Barcelona;
    Searching for Gaudi’s soul,
    I ride through all vias, all views, until sunset;
    I step back, take in all that is before me,
    And find his touch, a smile from the heavens,
    Beaming down toward you, the answer,
