Queen Cleopatra

Alexander’s city
Alexandria of Egypt
haunted by a Queen

Where Nile meets the sea
Great Mediterranean blue
This queen walks like ghost

Nile river barges
Sail into golden sunset
Fall under her spell

Mysterious queen
Casts a giant shadow still
On these surging waves

-A series of haiku

    The haikus are awesome. A little frightening the queen looks to be.

      Thanks very much, Kritika.

      Yes, Cleopatra does seem to be quite a frightening figure in that picture.

      The way she towers in size above the boats.

  2. The Butcher said,

    Great haikus. I really like them!

  3. George F. said,

    Frightening, yes. But beautiful, still. A reminder that a woman will entrance you, capture your seed and those seeds will disperse far and wide..
