Painting on Xuan paper, 82 x 54 cm, 2006
Flamenco! The word’s very rhythm
Invokes such passion and zeal.
Flamenco! Rings out like freedom!
The dance of love that you feel.
Flamenco! And ice starts to boil!
The triumph of soul in the clutch.
Flamenco! A heart in turmoil
And zest with no physical touch.
