Picture Hieroglyphs: Sacred Love Story


carpe diem
seize the day
or desert die

sarcophagus
display
in mausoleum

Cinderella
in glass case
life story

written in paint
picture hieroglyphs
life story coffin

alphabetic
logographic
elements

hierós sacred
glýphō Ι carve engrave
tà hieroglyphikà grámmata
the sacred engraved letters

regretting
the time
you lost

three strokes
the beautiful young people
the young military recruits

adrenaline rush
raced into battle
horses historic

chariot dust swirls
veils muscled beauty
spears swords ready

fallen youth fell
desert sands cloak
while Cinderella waits

time stepped aside
monumental awe we
admire your beauty

atoms sand glass fallen
nuclear fusion fission
nuked age picked over
