ancient beliefs

CANOPUS & THEONOE

Will you weigh and measure
My love for you?
Desiccated heart
Faintly crying out
Inside the body
Seat of the soul
A belief by the ancients
Afterlife organs
Spilling out of
Canopic jars
Sons of Horus
Guarding breath, taste
The brain though
Carelessly tossed out
Considered useless
A belief by the ancients
I agree
Look at the troubled path
Down which it led me
So I ask you again
Although the answer I know
You weighed and measured
My love for you
And let me go
With a handful of
Empty jars…

kerchelo (circle)

 

my sigil a circle

secret letters

in safe boundary

surface-scratched

some prevent sickness

some serve as sentinels

in a treacherous universe

where sanity

and sensibility

are protective saviors

silent symbols

signifying safety is

my spiritual practice
