September 23, 2012 Mary’s Mixed Bag Prompt Neighborhood

Taos Mountain

Neighborhood

My neighborhood is at the foot
Of Taos Mountain
Over time it has become
My home
The only home I know

A handful of
Spanish influence
Music and dance
Rice and beans
Spanish spoken
Knives flash

A handful of
Native influence
Chanting and drums
Ponys and sacred celebrations
Dark skin, hair and flashing eyes

A pinch of the Gringos
Loud, fat, disrespectful
Frightened

A fine pot of stew
All mixed together
It’s not always easy
Is it any wonder
