Walker Bass Features!
When her husband, King Osiris,
was attacked and scattered in pieces,
Isis scoured Earth for ages,
gathered him. She then transformed
to golden energy, flew around mate,
sang incantations of grace until life
was sewn in him. This death respite
could not last so they entwined
a final time and from their love
was born a son.
Crisis. Out of the bitterness
of the word the ancient Isis rises.
From the first syllable grief spills
and in that turmoil she is overshadowed,
hidden, but she is there and magical,
one step behind strife, ready to heal
what’s left, to make the best of now.
Patient, she waits to renew loss
to present gain, whispering “is…is.”
