i thought it would be a restful time. a time to lie back and let the waves lap against our feet, caress our thighs; feel the afternoon sun bake us in the sand. maybe take a ride on a raft, let the drifting winds take us where they please.

but your energy was like a monsoon, crashing the waves against the dunes, sweeping me out into the river, pulling me deep into the waters. i breathed in the life of the Nile and it filled me with joy.

i dragged myself out, wet, laughing. i rolled around in the sand with you, tickling your ribs, biting your lips. no torrential flood can keep me away. but you didn’t want me away anyway. it was a game. you wanted me close.

you’re so sweet-natured.

where the river will take us, who knows…


sailing down the river Nile…

i take the stairs
the river
it’s running through me
i feel the waves
engulf me
flow easily

i see the stars
the Nile
it’s deep in my veins
i feel the way
you engulf me
releasing the pain
