Granada fountain

Fountain with Pomegranates, a symbol of Granada. Granada and 1850, From my room I hear the fountain. A vine-tendril and a ray of sunshine. They point at the place of my heart. Through the August air the clouds drift. And I dream that I do not dream within the fountain. Federico Garcia Lorca - 1898-1936

Good image John
John Prior: Thanks a lot Vintage
Ha! I really thought it was taken from your room at first! Silly me.

Great shot!
John Prior: Thanks a lot LC, no just an appropriate verse from Lorca, who was murdered at Granada during the Spanish Civil War.

It's like I can see each droplet of the spray. I love fountains.
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, perhaps a little over processed smile
A lovely verse to go with your image. I love pomegranates! smile
John Prior: Thank you Linda. Lorca has a strong association with Granada, and met his tragic death there during the Spanish Civil War.

This is so lovely, John. I could happily linger there for a good while.
