June 25th, 1852, Antoni Gaudi was born
located in the Mediterranean.
He carried a gift through to adulthood,
Setting his sights on architecture.
Inspired by geometric masses,
Floral and reptilian formats.
Geographically he believed he was endowed,
and filled with originality.
Never failing to be defeated,
he took up every opportunity,
turning it into his own creativity.
All around different architectural styles
accumulate, making Barcelona a resemblance of
an open air urban museum.
Impressive vaulting, colours and techniques
Gaudi carried on till he took his last breath
leaving the structure; Sagrada Familia, still uncompleted,
a deadline of 2026.
A anniversary mark, of a genius that avoided confrontations
and lived by his own rules and regulations.
He leaves behind a city that blossoms with magical desirability
That makes you reach out with charisma and appreciation.
