this totally hit me...in 5th grade
i was an Egyptian buff...i had to get my hands on anything egyptian, and i totally forgot about that til now. thanx for nostalgic
moment... i like the backwards lines. i've done that myself a few times. the capitalization at the beginning of each line
kinda distracted me. this kinda bugged me..."Constellations are flashing anciently". for some reason that does not sound grammatically
correct. "anciently." who knows, i could be wrong...and the first line made me laugh. i have always wanted to stay at the
Luxor hotel in Las Vegas. And actually last nite i was sitting on my floor and thinking that i should plan a trip to vegas.
just for a few days to hang out by myself. maybe i should stay at the luxor... kudos. i liked.' SUNRISE POETRY
