Miro’s Eyes

1 March 2017

There are sweeping views
from the Gardens of Montjuic,
a city of coral
streaming as far as the sea,
constellations of migrating birds,
spirals of dragonflies,
night, music and stars
webbed in red, blue and black.
They held the balance –
canvases of connection
in the face of war –
carob trees, animals and insects,
emblems of hope
still holding back the melt
of Spain’s corners.


Notes:
In response to Joan Miro’s The Nightingale’s Song at Midnight and the Morning Rain
(Constellations Series) 1940. Miro Gallery, Barcelona, Spain.
