Faluka in the Nile at sunset (Luxor)

Faluka on the Nile (Luxor) (c) AM

From the primordial waters
I created myself
I am everything that is
all that ever was
and what is to come

No one has ever laid open
the garment by which I am concealed
I am the Ancient One
mistress of the bow
red crown ruler of arrows

On the muddied bank
in the land of the lake
I birthed the sun
opening the way
to fertile dynasty
