The poem ‘Gaudían Like Structures’ is inspired by recent states and frames of mind of futility, struggle, and doubt, and the following dream:
I arrive at the square in the town of Aguada where I grew up as a child and find the church/cathedral totally transformed into a Gaudían like structure. I find this change totally captivating and stand in awe as the lineal symmetry of the old church has become almost alien-like and fluid. I could almost compare it to a classical musical concert transformed into a Latin jazz jam – both beautiful in their own way.
Above is an update on the slow progress of my drawing Yawning Gnosis. I am currently also working on a double portrait painting that requires much more of my time than is usual because of a looming deadline. Whoosh!
Gaudían Like Structures
Questioning the insane the very existence
harmony feeding fake fat far removed
lowly drippings in this world so slow
strong emotions riding hard gross stone.
Despair design degree disgrace
headlights dimmed low
Cathedral temple church crumbles,
Gaudían like structures replace antique line
I marvel strong spectacle
staggering beauty sublime.
Delight design degree acclaim
numerous questions remain,
vision version renewed
multi hued ludic tunes
reign ample prelude.
I’ve included a photo of Casa Batlló and of La Pedrera which are similar to the image in the dream and one ofthe church “Parroquia San Francisco de Asis de Aguada”. The images are from the site gaudiclub.com and from wikimedia commons.
