stone upon stone
sweat of slaves in the desert
year upon year
the precision of
pyramids to encapsule
bones and dust
the sun shines
directly on them
these labouring men pity of
wives and children hungry for a little daily bread
their product the fancy of pharaohs future generations easy to inherit

Carpe Diem #790 The Great Pyramid of Giza
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs -
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden
Chèvrefeuille's Fibo-ku follows the Fibonacci sequence in haiku, as follows:
1st line 1 syllable; 2nd line 1 syllable; 3rd line 2 syllables; 4th line 3 syllables and so on as is the Fibonacci sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on.
You really captured the intensity of the labor involved!
Interesting in the words and in how it appears on the page. Very nice.
Great fibo-ku Gillena you caught the image of the hard labour of the slaves to create the pyramids ... very well done.
Great take, Gillena.
