Miro’s Eyes

By | 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.

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