Lima, Peru

Lima has a pulse
arterial and venous it flows…
	all the colors of the rainbow glow
in the mist of Pacific sea's
hectic days and disco nights
	 beat into the sand at the ocean's lea.

Lima's life flows 
from Palacio de Gobierno ...
	in measured meter from the fountain glow
amidst a Catholic sea
spirits rise of the children of the sun
	cleansed of their faith by papal decree.

Lima wealth flows
its chic denizens prance baroque boulevards
	barricaded behind razor wire's show
life for the wealthy addressee
distanced from the hovels of El Salvador
	and the festive strum of the mariachi.

Lima has a pulse
arterial and venous it flows...
	as buses disgorge invaders, colorful, slow
Shamanism lies in a Catholic sea
proud, head held high, clinging to He
	beat into the sand at the ocean's lea.

    Sounds like an intresting "trip". Have you ever been there? I know someone who wrote about the 50 States even though he had not been to all of them. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
