Falucas – Aswan, Egypt

Falucas – Aswan, Egypt

Written by:

I closed my eyes, and go back thousands of years

The Pharaohs had enjoyed this moment before me

The river, the vessel and the sunset

The river man looks at me and says: “You must drink the water from the Nile to be allowed another passage in the future”

Wishing to return, I drank the water

Hunted by the absence of the Nile,

I often dream about the Pharaohs, the Nile, the vessel and the sunset that took a part of me on that day

I must return to the Nile to be whole again
