Best Cherl Dunn Poems

All bow low unto Pharaoh,
Queen of all upper, and lower Egypt.
Hollowed halls echo thy name,
Cast red sails towards infinity's,
 Swift currents.
 Nile waters part steadily 
Anubis guardian of the dead,
 Receive thus living deity.
Let sacred alters burn bright, 
Light sacrifices ashen embers, 
In thine honers reverence.
Beneath desertions desert ruins,
 Lies etched upon mortar's stone.
A royal tomb bearing her,
 Unspoken name, Nefertiti.
 Golden saddles press against,
 Mortals realm,
Behold a phantom goddess,
 Brushed ageless,
By times untarnished memory,
The pasted reveals truths,
Through redemption's flame,
Two scepters crisis cross,
 Within beauty's touch.
An ancient throne has,
 Been reclaimed. 
Raise great sphinx, from
 Your sacred resting place,
Shake free fetters sandy mane,
 Breath once again,
 His might’s roar harold’s,
 Her return.
Soft winds blow against,
 Freedoms breeze,
Exposing a glittering figure,
 Standing tall,
Beside the great monolith.
All bow low unto Pharaoh,
Queen of all upper, and lower
Hollowed halls echo thy name.

    Hi Cheryl, I feel like drinking a large glass of water, all of a sudden:) Thank you for taking me back to the 14 century. You are amazing. My friend, why is your poetry, the most mesmerizing and amazing stories? I'm not kidding. This is going straight to my Faves... I'm getting kind of mad, cause all your poems are ending up on my favorite list... I have many reasons, I love this... The wonderful imagery, the ancient throne reclaimed. I feel related to this poem, by force:):) The deep and majestic feeling,of the rising of the Sphinx. Linda
