Missed Mountains

I arrived at the Albuquerque Airport yesterday afternoon
as the sun was settling over the surrounding mountains,
turning the clouds and the snow-covered peaks
an unusual shade of pink and purple.
I've missed this state;
feels good to take a deep breath at 7,00 feet,
and have pizza with our neighbor,
and travel around neighborhoods where I feel at home,
and enjoy the views
of those amazing mountains again.
Hello New Mexico.
You've been missed.
