AGE by Althea Rhyl Bell

Old Egypt, soft and green –
Wavy sassafras grass shivers
while sleepy crocodile lies serene.
Sandy warm water between the toes,
and Red billed ibis among the reeds –
darting flies hide the billowing flows
of the white felucca’s sails.

Amen-Ra, pyramids and obelisks
surrounded by the Nile –
Cheop’s perfect, testimonies.
Yet Sphinx’s face challenges time and tales
washed by salty tears,
hauntingly scryes and
brings forth ancient memories.

Hello Peter,

This blog is linked to a writers' group based in Clifton. I have just begun setting up the linked pages for each writer. I will endeavour to put more information on each page asap.

Thanks for your interest, Michelle
