Churches and stores and homes alike,
built upon Incan foundations.
Man can conquer and subjugate
but never erase great nations.
Their brilliant constructions have been unearthed,
ingenious in their design.
Earthquakes and tremors cannot take them down.
as they stand the test of time.
Edifices awe, intrigue, inspire,
they challenge us as we stand
upon the grounds, the sacred earth
of a people, proud and grand.
In that I am a semi-retired Boomer and a grand-empty-nester, my husband (albeit less retired) and I are attempting to check off the items on our Travel Bucket List. Traveling to different countries is always an eye-opening, expansive experience. Delving into different cultures; the language, cuisine, crafts, and history, broadens our knowledge and perspectives on our world. This is particularly true when touring a country with a well-documented, rich and deep history, such as Peru.
Have you been anywhere that has changed or impacted your perspectives, views, even your life?
My first illustrated collection of poems is available for purchase.
