‘Bright Shining Fountain’
One wild drinking fountain in Barcelona beckons, when time comes to slake your thirst.
Three human faces, appearing as if in a masquerade, frame the fountain’s taps .
Above them a supine lion crouches beneath an armoured crest -paws, claws and all.
The whole shebang elevates a utilitarian water dispensary into an artful world.
Sustenance for the imagination as well as the body.
And that lion sure looks like he could do with a drink…
Elsewhere on this blog ,there is a poem of mine ,Bond/Flow, which mentions a fountain as a symbol of hope.
I had the chance to read that poem to others today as a wish for hope for them.
For you too.
