The following images were taken behind the San Felipe de Neri church in Alburquerque’s Old Town Plaza. The image was carved by my friend Ruzita Avila’s father. This image has been on this tree just over three decades. On December 1, 2012 Ruzita took my girlfriend Amanda and me and showed use the carved image. I took a few pictures and created some artistic images and was inspired to write a poem. La Virgen Morena is a very important part of our family and house hold. I am always looking for images of her created by those devoted to her. Today I was given the honor to see and photograph the following image.









La Guadalupana en el Arbol
by: Angelo J Sandoval

(c) 12-1-12

En un pesebre de madera
en una noche oscura
puso a su ninito Jesus
a dormir, a que fuera adorado

En una Cruz de Madera
los cuentos nos dicen
que era madera verde
la cruz,
quince pies de larga.
alli tambien viste
a tu hijo recustado

En dos estructuras
hechas de madera
del arbol de vida.
Jesus resen nacido y
al murir
en la leña de vida.

Virgen Santisma de Guadalupe,
el leño, el arbol de vida,
usted tambien escogillo
hacer su presensia
en ese arbol de vida.

En aquella casa de tu hijo
dedicada a San Felipe de Neri
escogo a su devoto y servio
que con su Mano
este tallador
tallo su imagen
en aquel arbol de vida.

Virgen Santa de Guadalupe
usted siempre,
con nosotros.
Con su hijo entro a esta vida
y salo de esta vida
en el arbol de la vida
Usted se hizo presente
en es arbol de vida.

Su servio, su devoto
en la Gloria estara
con usted y su Hijo.
La imagen en el arbol
siempre con nosotros.
