Carpe Diem #804 Yellow Nile (Wadi Howar)
Lake_Moeris_017 Lake Moeris

~~~

Wadi Wowar
remnant of the ancient nile
flows with yellow sand

~~~

yellow nile
ancient giver of life
now river of sand

~~~

until she is dry
Eonile spills her tears
Lake  Moeris

(not sure if this should read  was, spilled, since it is in the past – but then haiku is to capture a moment.)
