Machu Picchu -An Awesome Wonder

What an Awesome Wonder!

Machu Picchu

Here I stand in awe

Of your majesty and grace.

I have seen a few wonders;

Yet none as poignant as this place.

The discipline of the Incas.

Is evident everywhere.

You’ve transferred boring rocks and dirt

Into masterpieces built with intimate care.

Your rules of living,

And Sense of community is so relevant now.

Each of us has a purpose; A clear role to fulfill.

The more we help each other,

The better we all live.

    @Carlos-definitely well worth the trip. I thoroughly enjoyed the views of Machu Picchu and the people are very nice also. In Machu Picchu-the air was fresh and clear and similar to being in a quiet mountainous area. It was inspiring and refreshing. It was a certain coolness about being in Machu Picchu. Now in Lima, the air smells like Diesel, exhaust and it’s more polluted.
