Malaga II

On our last day in Malaga
it was a cultural day
Leaving early when still cool
to find the castle way

Views of the city from the top
with honeysuckle there
Then down through shaded alleys
Roman columns everywhere

The Museum of Picasso
was the next thing in mind
but Jackson Pollock’s ‘Mural’
was an extra special find

The Roman amphitheatre
was wonderful to see
The Marble seats all still intact
despite the history

Then with temperatures still rising
to Pompidou we went
In coolness of the galleries
two peaceful hours spent

So all in all we have to say
it was spectacular
A very special last day spent
in lovely Malaga


Commissioned by Peggy Guggenheim and inspired by Pablo Picasso’s ‘Guernica’, Jackson Pollock’s 1943 work ‘Mural’ was on display as a part of a special European touring exhibition at Malaga’s ‘Museo Picasso.
