Goddess of Love

August 13, 2010 § 5 Comments

When i am sitting at the door of a tavern,

I, Ishtar, the goddess,

Am prostitute, mother, wife, divinity.

I am what people call life,

Although you call it death.

I am what people call Law,

Although you call it Deliquency.

I am what you seek

And what you find.

I am what you scattered

And the pieces you now gather up.

Ancient lyrics to Ishtar, the Mesopotamian Goddess of Love

Hymn To Isis

August 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

for i am the first and the last

i am the venerated and the despised

i am the prostitute and the saint

i am the wife and the virgin

i am the mother and the daughter

i am the arms of my mother

i am barren and my children are many

i am the married woman and the spinster

i am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated

i am the consolation for the pain of birth

i am the wife and the husband

and it was my man who created me

i am the mother of my father

i am the sister of my husband

and he is my rejected son

always respect me

for i am the shameful and the magnificent one

hymn to isis, third or fourth century b.c.,

discovered in nag hammadi

Every time I read one of his books, I change.
