The Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona

 

 

Awe-inspiring red rocks surround us.

Breathtaking scenes are everywhere.

This beautiful place is heaven on earth.

It is peaceful. Comfort to the soul.

A paradise for artists, poets and writers.

The vortex attracts us and monsoon rains

come and go. We came here for the beauty

and found satisfying eye candy and more.

Words cannot describe the feeling of

being at ease in Sedona. Refreshed and

renewed, we return to our “normal”

lives but with many lasting memories.

Tlaquepaque awaits and beckons us.

My soul bursts with joy at the red

earth, the cactus, magnificent sunsets

and with the knowledge that I shall

return soon. The red rocks summon

and offer peace and serenity.

    Mein Vater war vor Jahren schon von dieser faszinierenden Landschaft Amerikas begeistert ,und hat mein Fernweh geweckt.Leider lassen sich nicht alle Träume verwirklichen.Ich freue mich für Dich,daß Du mit deinerTochter eine solch wunderbare Zeit verlebt hast und eine solch außergewöhnliche Excursion durchführen konntest.Von deinen Eindrücken wirst Du sicher noch lange zehren können.
    Alles Liebe und Gute

    • Dear Arno, thanks for another insightful comment about our wonderful vacation in Arizona. You know the expression “where there’s a will, there’s a way” because the German is very similar? If you travel to no other place in the US, you should definitely include Arizona and Sedona on your list. It is worth the effort and memories will last a lifetime. Have a lovely weekend, Mary Ann 🙂

    • In your lifetime, this should be on your bucket list. The Grand Canyon is only two hours from Sedona and will captivate your imagination. I am still basking in the red rocks! So magical. ^__^ Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    Sedona! We live just 2-1/2hrs south in Mesa. We try to take a drive up-to Sedona every 3-4 months. Your poem describes exactly how you feel for the next few days after leaving. We only spend a few hours each time we go but, it is a very refreshing few hours. When visiting Arizona, Sedona should be on the top of your list of places to see!

    • Hello, Arizona. Thanks for such an insightful comment. Sedona burns inside me, and I long to return. Talk about the magic and pull of the area. Lucky you to live just a short drive away. I can’t wait to return! Thank you. ^__^
