Ruins of the Romans

Sabratha Ruins

Outside Tripoli, Libya

Sabratha hosts the Roman remains of the area

Once the mighty Romans

Roamed through the place.


The remains evokes the once glamorous

Grandeur of the nation.


The marble walls,

The majestic entrance,

The gorgeous inside decor,

The fancy staircase of

The royal theatre, Roman pomp and splendour.


The history of the Romans’ revisits my thoughts

As I am trying to touch the living artifacts

of the once mighty rulers of the universe

with my hands.

The royal proceedings,

The royal play,

The royal drama,

All seem coming through celluloid to me!


Wise men hunts for learning at the

abodes of civilization.

This grand place also offers great way

to learn about life.

It is not only about the richness

of their Architecture,

But also the celebration of life.

Moira, What an expressive, informative, touching poetic tribute to the spectacular legacy of the ancient Roman civilization! It may be ruins, but they're so well made that the complete building and setting can be imagined. Additionally, I love the openings for flow of air and energy.

Thank you for sharing, etc.,

Derdriu

Derdriu, the Romans certainly knew how to build stuff that would last. They may be ruins now, but the foundations were strong enough to be able to exist in these present times and give us the opportunity to see what it was like centuries ago. Remarkable, isn't it? Thank you for your comments.
