The East Side Of Peru Two
Art And Poetry by Jim Nasium

Over grown green trails
lead into the unknown
towards snow capped peaks
that must be crossed

below valleys lay waiting
for strangers who come to stay
at first for only a while
then end up never leaving

a magical place
warmed by the sun god
coca and gold for the taking
if you are one of the strong

horse back day trips to ruins
rich in history and wonder
ancient places that need respect
to be understood completely

long cold nights are spent
wrapped up in Indian blankets
woven by hand on primitive looms
while naked llamas roam freely

woman cook the big meal of the day
men are back from the hunt
children busy at play
no one minds that I am here

to them I am a strange man
they don't understand what I do
when I am out in the ruins
somewhere on the East side of Peru
