Pseudonym

March 6, 2012

I can’t help but wonder if,

when he said my other name

should be,

could be,

Isis,

he knew that she’s a goddess –

the goddess of

nature and magic,

the ideal wife and mother,

the seat of the king’s power,

the patron of

sailors (with her lusty wenchiness)

and the patron of healers,

able to control the weather by the knotting or unknotting of hair and

gifted with the interpretation of dreams.

I wonder if he knew she is called

She who gives birth to heaven and earth,

She who knows the orphan,

She who knows the widow spider,

She who seeks justice for the poor people,

She who seeks shelter for the weak people

She who seeks the righteousness in her people

and I wonder if he knew

they called her

The Brilliant One in the Sky,

Star of the Sea

Great Lady of Magic,

Mistress of the House of Life,

She Who Knows How To Make Right Use of the Heart,

Light-Giver of Heaven,

Lady of the Words of Power,

Moon Shining Over the Sea.

and I wonder if he

meant to call me Isis

after all.
