Resurgence 2020

By Lila Moore

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.

The dreamers

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.
