The Eyes Of Horus

Once, the eyes of Horus
shone with equal brilliance,
sun and moon
played hide and seek
like two lovers in dalliance.
Then jealousy raised its head,
Seth raised his hand
against his brother, Osiris.

Lying in wait,
Seth bends his bow,
fires a vengeful arrow,
misses King Osiris,
strikes the eye of Horus,
wounding it, dimming its light.
Now the moon hides in darkness
while the sun boasts of its brightness.

The moon grows daily
more jealous and angry;
its full face burns with fury,
but can’t regain its past glory. ...

Autumn

Summer has run its course;
the year is coming to a close.
There is a chill in the air,
leaves are strewn everywhere.

Shrubs and trees catch cold,
shake and shiver in the wind.
Leaves of hues red and gold,
flutter and fall to the ground.
