Together in Cordoba – the complete picture

For techincal reasons beyond my ability to comprehend, I can’t post the whole picture in the same post as the details. So, here are the poem and picture one more time.

Together in Cordoba – 2008

The light like
honey-fire
And the night warm-scented

In the Cathedral-Mosque
walking among the columns,
together
among the ancient columns
like palm stems
under arches
like palm fronds
and the windows of stone-lace

In the golden light before the door
the young couple
Greeting? Parting?
They clung to one another.

  1. John, this is stunning. So simple and so exquisite. I’d brought a tingle to the spine and a bit of moisture to the old 61-y-old eyes. Beautiful memories. Well done.
