Collaboration!?

Hey fellow Pharaohs! How's it going? I know my blog tends to be a bit random. A lot of musings, sometimes music, sometimes movie reviews, and a bit of travel adventures, but I would say the form of writing I enjoy the most is definitely poetry! Recently a fellow blogger made a post seeking collaborators … Continue reading Collaboration!?

Trance

Mist engulfs the crowd. A clearing provides a view of distorted lights. The sway of hands in the air creates many goal posts for rolling waves. Face to face and a poker gaze held from a Pharaoh. A melted heart with a quick lift of an arm and a twirl. Shuffle the deck and gamble … Continue reading Trance

Meaning, Form, Pronunciation

Explained, but likely unknown. That which must be explained cannot be understood. Inner-standing-- amorphous within the body paragraph. Formed by experiences, diluted by time, or fresh in an undefined time in the lost now. Found howls and serenades-- enunciated at different frequencies.

Orientation

The crow and the pigeon walk along the city center. Suits, dress shirts, cameras, and lights abundant in this city of sin. A new experience and they now feel like tourists. They enjoy the simplicity of a simple stroll. En route to The Magical Slice of Pizza. Aria behind-- cosmos ahead. Secret pizza in an … Continue reading Orientation

He wanted to control the sunlight. He didn't … Continue reading First Sun, Top of the World

Richard Parker Slithers Forward

The poem down below is meant to cheer a fellow blogger up. She was sent a dick pic today, and feels her blog has been plagiarized by others as well, so is going through a pretty rough time. When I first followed her, she posted a 60-item-long bucket list. It got me to thinking of … Continue reading Richard Parker Slithers Forward

Pharaoh’s Cobra and Furukihara’s Cave

Pharaoh boards his connecting flight from Dallas Fort Worth to Miami. The second of three connecting flights he would need to take in order to reach Barcelona. He sits in the middle aisle seat in the center of the plane. He sees a petite nimble Japanese woman approaching on the right aisle. He hopes that … Continue reading Pharaoh’s Cobra and Furukihara’s Cave

Pistachio Bag of Life

Life is like a bag of pistachios. Often times as you dive through your bag there won't be any complications and you'll effortlessly pry open the shell and eat the delectable pistachios. Every now and then you'll get a pistachio with a tiny hole that can be somewhat strenuous to open. You decide to disregard … Continue reading Pistachio Bag of Life
