The hill to enter winds downwards:
Fragments of scenes intervene,
As if return, again the same but not.

A peacock screels a wild meow:
Its mating call awry in the park’s
White haze of spring pollen.

Along the White Hall of Peace
A bronze goddess begins,…
The size of my thumb, blue, green.
Footsteps crackle on glass floors.
Feet burn over Guernica’s rubble.

A saint in Picasso beret,
His uniform containing still
A faded blood stain inside
The glass frame, stands beside me,
93, old man on the hill with a tale
To tell, loss, betrayal…Our Lady?

The husk of the nine hundred year oak
That survived the bombing, preserved
In an iron pen, in a small column temple,
Seems to glare a stare for yet defiance:
A baleful ghost this sunny afternoon
Amidst the flowers of Plaza de Arbol.

I visit Guernica & Museo Gurgenheim:
Our Lady in her labyrinth of plastic shrouds.
I just got back from Bilbao.

Nicely written thumbnail tour of Bilbao! Now you have made me want to go and experience it for myself! Nice one, Poet.

All of the senses are brought into your scene, that you vividly pen. Excellent, Robin, my favorite stanza (out of many) is:

A peacock screels a wild meow
its mating call awry in the park's
white haze of spring pollen. GORGEOUS!!!!

Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
