 "SCARAB"

 

Blind in one eye, forever I traveled through the desert night...

When arrived, in the darkness, an enormous Scarab*...

At the vision, of this goliath, I passed out cold.  


Dawn's light.  I awoke to a nymph, and her sunflower.

A mirage? A woman? A Goddess?

Alexandra.

                                        
She pointed toward the desert's horizon, the sun and its illuminating light.

Alexandra walked, and I, no longer blind, followed her to Ra**.

 



*The Scarab, or the God Khepera, in Egyptian mythology, was believed to have moved the sun.

**Ra, the ancient Egyptian sun god.
