Machu Picchu Love – Poem

Machu Pichu, Peru

Dreams chased me last night until I caught a poem. I’ve never been to Machu Picchu but my dream told me that love is sometimes like climbing the Incan temples.


Machu Picchu Love

Sacred ground,

ancient valley of magic

energy abounds.


Stepping lightly

you climb

to the pyramid of the sun,

ribbons of color flutter with no wind.


Citadel of grandeur,

temples of holiness awe

until you stumble,


down stairs to the sacrificial stone


Head in clouds excitement

make way to

nauseous headache


Machu Picchu love,

like a tourist attraction,

a bucket list adventure,

grand vistas one can only see

from the pyramid of love.

  1. Love it! My first time in Machu Picchu was pure magic and your poem reminded me of it.


  2. Like you, I’ve never been, but your words carried me there.
