The Alhambra

What is hidden, what is desired,
structure and pillar support
The focus a line that follows
the transcendence of arrangement

Residence situated in ornament
and beyond, seen and unseen,
designed in patterns, in curves,

where the inner is kept private,
shrouded, shadows where lines
cross where the external masks

All that luminosity in the surface
where creation is in the interval
between what can be seen and all
luster sequestered in that architecture
