Manrique’s House

Beyond belief,
Eco artform in desolate space
The black lava that once ran red
Now still and dense.
Stacked high it presses against the large window pane
Which does not break
How could this be?
Piled against the glass
Does not obscure the pure blue sky above
And turning from the window see
Orange cushions neatly placed
Like tangerines upon the sofa
Like the Timanfaya fires
The whole impossible feat
Yet balanced and harmonious
And like Cesar, believe
See the impossible,
Dare to dream.
