Canyon Ranch in Tucson

Canyon Ranch
By Kristi Blanco

Desert cactus
Yellow blooms
Native statues
Serenity looms

Healthy food
Mind and spirit
Try new things
Surrender to it

Watercolor
Beads and clay
Mourning doves
Greet each day

Yoga, chi
Meditation
Breathing, stretch
Relaxation

Questions asked
God has answered
Flying high
Being pampered

European facials
Grape seed scrubs
Shamanic Journey
Peaceful tubs

Tears of sadness
Letting go
Peace of mind
Let it show

Dry heat
Sunny day
Must come back
Want to stay

Common threads
Amongst the guests
What a journey
I’ve been blessed
