“The Sun, the Rose and the Child”


C/ Geranio

Mural as an illustration of the poem of the same name with a vision of past, present and future thinking.

The sun, the rose, and the child
were born the flowers of the day.
Things of every day
suns, flowers, new children.

Tomorrow I’ll be no more:
someone else will be real.
I’ll be no more, beyond
those who wish for their memory.

The flower of a day is tallest
at the foot of the smallest thing.
Flower of light, the lightning flash,
and flower of the moment, time.

Between the flowers you went.
Between the flowers I remain.
