Thanks for stopping by. I hope these winter storms didn’t cause you too much headache. Three winter storms in one week in my neck of the woods. Sorry I didn’t participate last weekend. I was attending a writing conference in Columbus all day Saturday, and I needed to catch up on school work on Sunday. There will be the odd weekend where I can’t participate (school comes first, I’m afraid).
I’m offering a poem from Reflections & Dreams, which is my unpublished poetry collection. This poem is entitled, Sevilla, which is about the city of Seville in southern Spain.
Along the narrow paved street,
Balconies draped in green and white,
Lanky man strums the chords,
Of the Gypsy melody.
Look up at golden watch tower,
Lasting impression of the Moorish triangle,
A badge, a symbol,
For locals to call their own.
Locals take refuge in casa,
From midday sun’s blistering touch,
They call it the ‘open oven’,
Resting peacefully until sundown.
Nightfall, the city awakens,
Tapas and golden brew bring smiles.
Listening to stories of sadness,
Through thundering dance.
Rhythm and euphoria meet,
Penetrating young souls of the night,
Expunge black memories,
Until the sun returns to smile again.
It’s hard to relate to if you’ve never been. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world, and if I had to recommend one city to visit in Spain, it would be Seville. I’d love to know your thoughts. Click on Weekend Writing Warriors for the official list of today’s participating writers. I apologize my previous post not allowing comments. I don’t know how that happened, but hopefully there are no “glitches” this week.
I will be out winter hiking today, so please don’t be offended if I don’t get around to commenting on your posts. Enjoy your Sunday!
