Between two continents and three countries,
Where the Med is guarded by the Pillar of Hercules,
Between reality and dreams,
Under a thousand stars’ gleam
Time stood still, as if suspended;
Under the moonlight shadows blended.
The Rock of Gibraltar- unyielding and untamed:
A silent sentinel keeping watch over the strait,
Let the light of the moon caress its rugged surface
With ephemeral touches, as if in poetry verses.
An endless night stretched over the Rock in defiance
To the sunrise and daybreak’s inevitable alliance.
