THE NILE

Denderah Temple (43)

Behold how the River Nile generously flows
and hugs the banks with its gentile waves
it flows and smiles to the sun above
it flows as the blood inside a body
it flows as the breaths inside the lungs
it flows to greet farms and gardens
it flows and waters thirsty throats
it flows and waters flowers and trees
it flows and offers fish for food
it flows and floods the dry soil
it flows through a valley of its creation
it flows beside great pyramids and temples
it flows to crown a heavenly land
it says: ”take my waters and grow”
it says: ”let my immortal waters flow”
it says: ”within my surge life awakens”
