From Above The Lost City

Before morning sun

      illuminates its beauty -
               gaze down; listen to
                        a long lost people whisper

                               through mists of Machu Picchu

copy and paste this link: to see a very interesting explanation
of why the Incan city was built and learn the supposed untruth about
its discovery:

For PD's Contest on the 7 Wonders of the World

    enjoying this one again, my friend. I'm not confident with tanka, but I've had a go at your contest. Please let me know (after judging) if I'm on the right lines, I looked at the link you recommended but still feel unsure...
