The Poetry Corner featuring Ed Ireland

Good morning everyone! Please join me in welcoming Ed Ireland! 🙂

Lioness of the Desert by Ed Ireland

The sun hangs over the ancient desert
Hot, burning, scorching all it can cover
The heat of her father burns in her heart
Consuming every friend, foe, and lover

Protector of Pharaohs, rulers of Egypt
Terrible, menacing in her fiercest wrath
Warrior goddess of death and destruction
Her enemy’s blood is now her bath

Yet tenderly healing her strong dying kings
Standing by them when judgment is sounded
Leading them into their final battle after death
Then setting their spirits free and unbounded

Dressed in red, your favorite color of blood
Except when you’re not dressed at all
The lioness eyes, muzzle, and braided hair
The fleeting features witness the enemy fall

Created by your father Ra, gleaned from a fiery eye
Sent to destroy his enemies, mortals of the lower Nile
Your task you finished with a wild zealous joy
Until almost all of humanity fell before your smile

Warrior goddess your breath created the desert
Tasked with the most important charge of all
Sekhemet you are called, the one who is powerful
Your image shines from obelisk, tomb, and wall

About the Poem: The ultimate figure of anger and wrath. The Goddess Sekhemet created to destroy the enemies of Ra. Her anger became rage and in her zeal the entire human race was almost lost. A testament to anger.

Awesome poem, Ed!

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
