New from the series Digital Poems of Ritual Magic
When the cat left her imprint
on the Paleolithic cave's wall
to possess a body,
Sekhmet was awakened
and born from her stony flesh.
saw the feline-woman quenching her thirst
with the blood of the flooding Nile,
reclining on the back of a crocodile,
weaving into a papyrus scroll
the myths of civilizations and eons.
The lotus dreamers
dreamt of her being carried to the muddy shore
on the back of a crocodile,
a cat hidden by papyrus plants,
breathing eternal life
into the mouth of her priestess.
