Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona

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
shine through.
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. 
Author's Notes:
Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona and Catalan Nationalism are a great passion of mine. I wanted to piece together a poem, to share my passion amongst friends. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.

You painted a glorious picture of a dedicated man, who brought to bear, a great city and way of life, that endures today and I think, forever. Being somewhat bohemian, myself, I can really appreciate and identify with this man and how you presented it. Well done, Leah.

So powerful architecture!  I have never seen this city, but I think I will look it up on the computer.  A.G. certainly sounds like an especially wonderful man.  David
