ANDALUCIA

These reds, these golds, this deep,
dream blue is for you. This song,
this drum, this dance, this sun, are for
you.
As these women play, as they
chant their hymn, as the sky turns
from darkness to light and the stage
becomes hell, it is for you, it is
for you.
This drama is your love
song. These actors move to
serenade your heart, to pay tribute
to a soul which wept in the night,
a body that cried with the dawn
and stood before the heavens
waving its fist, demanding its vision
of angels.
All these words are for you,
your proud head, your black hair,
your dark eyes determined to know,
to have their answer, to taste their
loving as you longed to love.
This
was what you taught me. This is
what I remember. All of this, my
lioness, my warrior, my dreamer,
is for you.
