stone upon stone
sweat of slaves in the desert
year upon year

the precision of
pyramids to encapsule
bones and dust

for miles
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

blog hopping today at
Carpe Diem #790 The Great Pyramid of Giza

hidden inside
now outside

star light
the breeze
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs -
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden
