Sacred Stone

Carved in sacred stone
upon temples of the Nile,
the history of Kings.

I've just discovered a new haiku meme! When I saw that the prompt word for today was 'sacred', I immediately thought of Egypt.
For more haiku, may I suggest you stop by
Haiku Heights at the following link...

You are very good with words along with your amazing talent behind the lens. I am so glad you have decided to share all of this with us.
Your photos allow us to see the world through your eyes, but your poems allow us to feel your heart through your words. You so need to do a book.
Hugs- Tete

Nice! Egypt, the only country I've ever really wanted to visit and never been there.
