Alhambra and Abraham


My eyes were bright

My heart excited, at this amazing sight

Two hundred and fifty years in the making

It stood through a tremendous shaking

Jews, Christians and Muslims together

They stood through any weather

Learning, seeking and living in tolerance

They are an example to all of us

Patience and workmanship engraved in the walls

I hope this place never falls

It represents so much history

Along with deep mystery

It offers up a haunting past

What was accomplished here will outlast

We should take note that peace existed before

And not go stir up another war

Each faith stemming from Abrahams lineage

We are all called to be peacemakers; it’s a clear message

Looking at the Alhambra from afar.
