On my recent trip to Granada in Spain, I was mesmerized by the beauty of the Islamic culture in the region, so I set out to capture the mediterranean warmth along with the scent of the citrus trees.
The harbors are big with it-
for the light and the
of a miracle,
and a clotting of acids
into the starry
so the freshness lives on
in a lemon,
in the sweet-smelling house of the rind,
the proportions, arcane and acerb.
From “A Lemon” by Pablo Neruda
