I SEE THE PYRAMIDS ! A Simple Form Poem








along ~ the Nile

Camels make me smile

thinking of you ~ all the while

You belong to me ~ You belong to me

Snuggled by by me in my tent where our so

blissful nights are spent ! Never mind the crocodile

enjoy the Pyramids employ the Pyamids ~ along the NILE !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX


The Centered Pyramid is the simplest form of Form Poem

the only difficulty is getting the overlap in each successive

line the same. Poets must have an extensive vocabulary !

Also a simple Pyramidal Poem ~ must be about PYRAMIDS

  • Comment from author about the poem: My Grandma told me that in the 1950's there was a lovely Love Song called "See the Pyramids along the NILE" ! They don't write them like that this Century ! The Pyramids @ Giza were built to last for ever ~ like Stonehenge (UK) ~ so whenever you visit ~ they will still be there ! Sun kissed love to ALL ~ BRIAN XOX

            My object in this muse escape
            Is to make the \"Poem fit the Shape\"
            and not one letter will escape
            !\'ll trap each letter in the shape
            and not one letter will escape
            often HATED ~ CASTIGATED SHAPE !
            (Apologies to G & S)

              We - a couple of us - are getting obsessed with syllables! But they're needed!

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks ANDY ~ Yoiur syllabically BRIAN

                I love a Girl who is monosyllabic
                Cool and cuddly as a Rabbit
                SYLLABLE I love ~ O you can Guess
                Is never NO and always YES !

                • orchidee

                  I sit atop a pyramid and yell, For all the world must know, Unless I'm Andy in disguise - Cooeeee, Steven here!

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    HI STEVE ~ I'll give you a reprieve ~ early Alzheimers I believe

                    On my wall written BIG & HANDY
                    Is note ~ Both my friends are DANDY
                    ORCHIDEE ~ A STEVE ~ A STEVE is he
                    And my friend GOLDFINCH ~ is ANDY !

                    You couldn't be mistaken for a better (ANDY)MAN !
                    Mea culpa ~ again ~ BRIAN from Auld Lang Syan !

                    Well done Brian!

                    • BRIAN & ANGELA

                      Thanks HONEY ~ For me POETRY is always a challenge ~ always experiential ~ and like all Men of my age (33) always striving for perfection and never quite achieving it ! Poetic Hugs ~ BRIAN

                    • malubotelho

                      Like the feeling on your writing. Another place I get to visit. I visit it with a mantra non meditation. Well, I've tried but never succeeded yet.

                      • BRIAN & ANGELA

                        OBRIGADO ~ MALU ~ All these exotic places (Paris ~ Table Mountain (SA) ~ Taj Mahal (India) and Egypt are closer to the UK than the USA therefor more accessible ! However with the development of \\\"Interactive TV\\\" you will be able to touch and climb the Pyramids ~ ride (and scent) a Camel and cuddle a Baby one, Scheduled for 2020 or Earlier on Mainstream TV. Pleased you got the Pyramidal feeling of GIZA its awesome. Fortunately my Parents were rich enough to take me to many of these places as a Teen. Now I take them to exotic Places ~ Quid pro Quo ! Brotherly Hugs ~ BRIAN

                      • Christina8

                        Wonderful poem! I've long dreamt of seeing the pyramids! Maybe someday. Very creative poem. Hugs-Christina

                        • BRIAN & ANGELA

                          THANKS CHRISTINA (love the elegance of you full name !) Thanks for your supportive comment. I did mention to MALU that exotic places ~ like EGYPT are much closer to the UK than the USA therefor cheaper ~ if you can afford to go ! Hope your dreams come true but maybe with reality TV by 2020 "The Pyramids along the Nile" will come to you ! PYRAMIDAL HUGS ~ BRIAN

                        • sue.evans

                          I like your pyramid poem Brian. I will have to experiment with this and other shape poems- easier with pen and paper though than electronically fir some shapes! Have visited the Pyramids at Giza 😊

                          • BRIAN & ANGELA

                            Thanks SUE ~ great that you have seen the PYRAMIDS @ GIZA ~ great experience ~ and the SPHINX also ! Yes indeed ~ shape poems are harder to write electronically ~ for DIAMOND & HOUR CLASSES etc I get the top half correct ~ geometrywise and then repeat it backwards for the bottom half. This poses an additional problem ~ the reverse half has to make sense linguistically ~ I'm beginning to sound like a Teacher ! Yours BRIAN. Please check my Office Poem ~ Thanks B.

                            This was really interesting to read, and I liked it a lot!!

                            • BRIAN & ANGELA

                              Thanks TBT ~ All poems have "SHAPE & FORM" but we can always add another dimension ! Of course the Poem must complement the SHAPE ! Please check my OFFICE Poem and also my FUSION on GAMES & PASTIMES ~ click on DEVELOPING to see the new Fusions ~ OK. Yours BRAIN

                            • myself and me

                              Another shape done. I bet this Pyramid poem will last longer than the Pyramid itself.
