My Poetry

I have another Ancient Egyptian poetry book in the works, called Sky, River and Sand: Poems for the Egyptian Gods.  I’m iffy on this title.

Poem: Going in 2018

This is what Egypt foretells

For this year

To end all years

One must begin anew

You must begin where you stand

Where you are,

For where else can you move from?

You must move from where you are.

You have had trials this year.

Some you failed, some you triumphed.

Loss and grief still cloud your way

And so does the disturber,

The peace you seek cannot come from another

It must be cultivated from inside.

You must be what you seek.

Be strong.

Be calm

Be creative.

And trust in your gods and yourself

To work to make your dreams come true.

Write, dear child.

Write.

Let Seshat help you.

Let Nebet Het help you.

Let Wesir help you.

And Let Aset and Wepwawet show you the way.

You are Loved

You are Loved

by JewelofAset

You need to love yourself

like a good parent

like a sibling

like a best friend

love your inner child

You are loved

You are adored

You are wanted

You are cherished

You are loved.

Do you know what it means to feel loved?

With a Hug

With a kiss

With a gesture of kindness

With a thoughtful gift

With romantic gestures

With aiding someone

Being there for someone

Petting a cat or dog

What makes you feel loved?

Hugs;

Spending time with people

Gifts

People who are there in an emergency or health crisis

Curling up with a book when it’s raining outside

Spending time with friends because you are wanted and need to be there

Good Family and Friends

Feeling loved when people do kind things for you

You need to feel loved just by existing as an awesome human

Notice all of this requires movement

You don’t sit idly by

You do

You act

You perform these tasks

So this love you crave for yourself

You must treat yourself as you would

another

whom you love

Sun, Star and Desert Sand is Published!
