Poetic Bloomings Landmark or Monument

Mesa Verde Tableau 

Highway winding up
Like castle movies
Clear blue sky, hot, dry
Pinyon, juniper
Gnarled, twisted, thirsty
Ship rock, desert sea

Reach large parking lot
Near welcome center
Din of languages
Ask rangers, tickets
Flyers and a plan
Videos, post cards

Museum marvels
Ancient one models
Half-Naked natives
Brown skin, black hair, small
Yucca, pottery
Manos, metates

Far View, Hiking trails
Balcony House, steps
Thirty-foot ladders
Cliff Palace, Step House
Spruce Tree House, Long House
Wetherill Mesa

Tucked tight under cliffs
Mud-structure village
Multi-story rooms
Rectangle series
Circular kivas
Thousand-foot-drop yards
