Santa Fe

Narrow streets amidst adobe,
Adobe buildings everywhere,
Like clay castles,
With their own villages of artists,
Weavers, painters, pottery makers,
Fine art on display
In a city called Santa Fe.
A place tied to culture and saints
Where the artist sits and paints
Offering no complaints
On a sunny day.
Saint Francis sits and watches
Near the Basilica,
Reaching out to life
As he must have centuries ago
In a place across the ocean.
Art constantly in motion,
As a small breeze breaks through
Amid the mountain view
And the adobe buildings
And the colors at play
In a city called Santa Fe.
