Albuqurque, New Mexico

A beautifully hidden work of art. Absolutely stunning from the very start. Vivid colors of purples and pinks. Fill the setting skies as it sinks. Mountains surround the city's pride. Protecting it from the world outside. The mountains and skies are the words that tell the story. The building and cultures are the pictures that hold the glory. Listen close so you can hear the wind telling the tale. It will teach you beauty, please dont be stale. Close your mind and open your heart. And you'll love it from the start. By: Cherica Eckiwaudah

Cherica (what is the origin of your name?) beautiful poem. My husband and I drove from California to Arkansas for a family reunion and passes through New Mexico. I loved the rock formations that separate Arizona from NM. Very impressive sight!!! Unfortubately we did not have time to stop in Albuqurque but thanks to your write now I can image it. Thanks for your comment. Love, Iolanda

When I visited the Native American museum in Albuquerque I saw paintings/artwork of some of the images you describe. I love the city's culture and its sense of pride. You captured it beautifully, Cherica! Love, Carolyn
