A misty morning Egyptian song

A misty morning Egyptian song

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

colors of sunrise in a sky of blue

"
Awakening to the scent of morning rain 

as Roses unfold in the essence of love... 

Ancient songs of Egyptian lore when 

Pyramids held passionate secrets of 

forbidden love that would linger with 

the scent of lavender and almonds 

upon the breast of Pharaohs until 

the end of time with  

frankincense and myrrh...

This poem touches a spot I was thinking about scratching but you beat me to it! I just love the title. I love all the awesomeness you pack into your imagery, reminiscent of cultures on the other side of the world. Your last line speaks to me of the holidays, too. I'm catching a connection between writing about this region & how it plays a part in how most of us envision the Christmas story (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

There is something so special about the scent of the air early in the morning after a rain storm. Egyptian....hmmmm...where did your mind wander, my friend. The reference to frankincense and myrrh makes me think of the three wise men. I wonder if we could find three wise men in today's world! Always a pleasure to read you, Pat. Lydi**

well done! Egypt ... the land of myth and mysteries ... i admire you voice, Pat .. truly do .. you are precise, concise and surgical yet create in color, scent and emotion ... really like this one ... great closing ... i put our beloved pet Bella to rest about a month ago now. I built her coffin and we put her blankies, toys and her pink Harley Davidson collar in with her .. i packed her with frankincense, myrrh, cedar and natron (sea salt and bicarb) ....anyway ... especially like your closing with those spices ... i know what they smell like ;) and its lovely actually ... your poem brings romance ... even in the buried secrets of the tomb ... like this one a lot!!

Interesting that the speaker should awake with thoughts of ancient Egypt. Amazing how our sense of smell can take us to places without our minds bidding them!

The nose is much under-rated! All the scents, the memories they can store and return a hundred fold over the years. That very first inferred perfume: 'morning rain' on wet grass, soil, the al around - nose rises up to inhale that.. and for me so much better than madly expensive scents.

As to the lilt of your lines, they near ripen the senses. expand history and the use of herbs.. Wonderfully descriptive, Patricia. Hugs, blessing and more.. Em xx

I picture this inked on a parchment and laid to rest with a lover or etched glyphs on the inside of a tomb. Beautiful in its sense of history and rich in visuals and olfactory sensations. Loved it!!
