Alhambra

paradise
a garden with running water
water in a dry land

it calls to us,
beckons alluringly,
sooths the soul
the sound of water
the scent of rain
aridness constrained
water in a dry land

castle on a hill
bastion opposing heat and sun
the edge of civilization
triumph in time, over time
pools, fountains,
senses willingly beguiled
paradise
water in a dry land

so you have been to me
water in a dry land
