Dedicated to my husband Miguel. He is posing for me. The Tower and his figure are a whole, scaled as it is in reality. Is imposing.
This is part of my city and dream. As my eyes could see it, but not like that. A blending of layers, of moments of sights, transforming a dull disposition in a reality that I love. Photoshop at the most. but real subjects photographed by myself. Qualities and texture got with the blending modes.

*It had reached the sun,
engulfed the period of passion.
It had touched my feet,
rooted the poems of oblivion.
It had protected my dreams
giant animals devouring the Soul.
It had guarded the wildness,
prepared to attack upon fear.
It had treasured my treasures,
of feelings and poetry.
It had covered my shadows,
avoiding the burning desires.
It had piled the inhabited homes,
ready to fly away in a travel.
It had stored up the furniture,
of my skills and delights.

It did…and it does,
Tower of Fire,
leaning my backbone,
along the profile,
a pain to be awaken,
the electric diamond heart.
No doors…no windows,
no eyes to be seen,
austere recollection,
secret space and relying.

I can invite you through love,
but be aware of your intention.
It is is easy to melt with the atoms,
when the distance is wide …warm.
but so hard to leave or scape from,
when the steel of my reasons,
distilled from the emotions,
turns my Fire…into Ice.
Into Storm.
Rosa*

    Su columna se estira al cielo y alcanza la energia del sol, e te imagino frente a el con tu columna estirando hacia la luna. Que hermoso ha de ser cuando comparten su energia, pero aun estando de frente forman uno … dos individuos unidos que al estar unidos no quitan uno del otro sino crean mas.
    Te felicito Rosa, por esta obra.

  • Es curioso…creía que cuando escribí el poema, y creé la imagen solamente estaba Miguel en ella..ahora me doy cuenta que estamos los dos y así nos ven las personas.
    Muchas gracias por pasar por aquí y dejarte un trocito de tu corazón, Richard.
