Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
First this: You cannot register anymore for our first Renga Party. I will start with preparing the list of participants in this Renga Party I hope to have it ready tomorrow.
It's my pleasure to welcome you at a new episode of our daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we are traveling over The Nile in our papyrus boat with full sails. We are following The Nile to its source, hidden in secrets.
Today we are visiting The Great Pyramid of Giza, better known as the Pyramid of Khufu or Cheops. Its one of the seven ancient world wonders and in a way this episode is a reprise. Back in the history of CDHK we visited the seven ancient world wonders and earlier this we revisited another one of the seven ancient world wonders, The Lighthouse of Alexandria were our journey started.
There are a lot of theories about the Great Pyramid you will all know at least one of them I think. There were scientist who said that the Pyramids are build by aliens and not by humans. There are others who said it was build by the Israeli people while they lived in Egypt during the time of Moses. Others have looked at the Pyramids with a mathematical eye and that made me happy, because from the mathematical way of looking to the Pyramids it occurs that the Pyramids are following the Fibonacci sequence.
The Great Pyramid isn't just one pyramid, but three pyramids who all are perfectly aligned with the stars of the Belt of Orion. Those ancient architects were very clever and more than wise, because of this fact. Isn't it awesome that a long way back in history it was possible to create such big pieces of art as the Great Pyramid?

pharaohs trip to eternity -
Leo shines above
Here is an example of such a "Fibo-ku":
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs -
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden
