The Nile Speaks


I spoke to the Nile -

I asked: “What is your name?”


The river replied:

“I have many names.

I have been called River, Sea, Valley, and Mountain;

I have been called Blue, White, Black, Red, and Yellow;

I have been called Friend and Companion;

I have been called Peaceful, and I have been called Terrible.

I have been called Father, and I have been called Mother.

Some people name me after themselves;

Others name me after their lands.

I have been called God, and I have been called Water.

I am all of these, to all of my children. My name doesn’t matter to me.”


I spoke to the Nile -

I asked: “How can I know you?”


The river replied:

“By jumping in,

By getting wet,

By letting me carry you in my arms,

And not the other way around.”


I spoke to the Nile -

I asked: “What is your essence?”


The river replied:

“My essence is life, my essence is joy, my essence is love, my essence is ecstasy.

I am all of these to my children. ”


I spoke to the Nile -

I asked: “Who are your children?”


The river replied:

“All those who are nourished by me are my children.

All those who delight in me are my children.

All those who flow with me are my children.”
