Meeting Bast

I met You in the depth of night

I knew You little then

Pictures in a book

A statue

You were a Goddess

remote to me

Someone worthy of honor

I had Anpu, and I thought that was enough

You came to me in ritual

Laid Your paw upon my chest

In that moment I felt

So much





So very much

You made me want to dance with wild joy

To be

So much of You is missed

Between the covers of a book

The scratchings upon scrolls

So much I would have missed

Were I never to look upon Your feline Face




Far more than ‘just’ a housecat; a Goddess

Far more than ‘just’ a joyous One; a Protector

Far more than words can say

Far more than pictures show

Yet You are those too

So many ways have I

been blessed to know You

Holy Bast

    I love the Egyptian mythology references used!

      Thank you. For me, part of the power of doing this devotional poetry is I will have something I want to say, and to say it in the right way I will do research and look at the titles, history surrounding, and stories of the Gods.

    Love yes she is so so so much more. She also like the Norse people I am not sure why. I find more and more Heathens etc called by her sultry voice.

      In my case I worshiped Anpu then came to Her through Him and worshiped Her. It was only about five years ago that I began worshiping the Norse/Germanic Gods. I do find it interesting how so many of us are called to by Her and Her fellow Gods.
