Climbing out of that cliff was a castle with a draw bridge, a stables and centre court. It’s said that David was already in the piece of Marble that Michelangelo chose, all he said he did was clear away the extra stone. Does that mean that some greater being chose to put a castle here and spoke in special whispers as the young architect walked by and decided he would devote his life to this one castle in the cliff?
Later as he lay on a small bed in the servants’ quarters he watched as the castle was filled with beds and wardrobes and couches and chairs. With cloth as red as the ruby the princess wears on her left hand, brown as the chocolate made in the kitchen and blue as the tears of the peasants who lived their lives to build such a home and live in small one room huts in the lowness of the valley.
