Machu Picchu

Riding on the wings
of a condor
I returned home
to lush green
to this mountain retreat
I surrender.
The sundial marking the time
Inti showing only
a reflection on the Earth
Practicing the same ritual
of being a priestess
since birth.
Fortress of agricultural riches
Rainbow present at the marriage
of the moon and sun
Stars aligned
as the calendar predicted.
The birds sing the chorus
while the Urumbamba river
keeps the beat
Chewing on the coca
Pachamama’s blessing
cloudy mountain mist
the perfect backdrop.
Overseeing the ceremony
for them to be wed
Inca adorned in royalty red
Puma at his feet
protecting the ruler’s seat
Snake rising above the ground
The Andean cross trinity
The sun and moon
united for infinity
Machu Picchu
the remnant of a
civilization’s divinity.



I am a reflection
of silent echos.
The universe
a speck
of sand
on a beach
each more lyrical
melodies of miracles.

One a perfection of
balanced harmonies
Free of calamities
Juggle of juxtaposition
Parallel coexist
Rightful persistence
Destiny wheel
and spins
Connected to
every changing lines
Ripple effect
of rocks skipping the pond
Depth to the mysterious
Flightless fear
I’ll be near
the light of life.
One of a kind,
there is


words won’t let

me rest, feeling caught

in my chest


Finding pens, writing

lines and rhymes

thinking in sound


Stumbling upon beauty

where there’s usually

none found



Painting with words

about creations

the universe has done


Poetry breathes life

Insight to the world

a soul’s way of fun


Sunday Reflections

Grounded red roots. deep

Connected umbilical cord

to the universe






Let go, cleanse yourself

Antigravity  free flight

Happiness in heart
