The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that "Egypt was the gift of the Nile". Silt deposits from the Nile made the surrounding land fertile because the river overflowed its banks annually. The Ancient Egyptians cultivated and traded wheat, flax and other crops around the Nile.

 

The Nile is a major north-flowing river in North Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world and has long been used to transport goods along its length.

 

While most Egyptians still live in the Nile valley, the 1970 completion of the Aswan High Dam ended the summer floods and their renewal of the fertile soil, fundamentally changing farming practices.

The sun sets behind the Nile. It was diffucult to capture how massive the sun seemed.

Captivating View of River Nile.....

 

My River Nile:

 

Cleopatra was so thirsty as this

When she prayed for Egypt’s ultimate bliss

The source of life which travels miles

Come wash my pain, oh River Nile

 

Cleopatra desired, and yearned the same

As the towns of Egypt just burnt like flame

Burnt for the cause of joy & smile

Come cleanse my wounds, oh River Nile

 

How I need more when you’re pouring lean

How I want more when you’re rushing mean

How I plunge into your crystal flow

How I follow where the whirlwinds blow

 

River Nile, My River Nile -

Your mystic keeps me dreaming

Your wonder fills my longing

 

River Nile, My River Nile -

Your power keeps me floating

Your healing ends my bleeding

 

Like a desert baptized by the sky,

Love overflows in me, My River Nile.
