Isis et Osiris


On godly throne
Osiris ruled
Until Set got his way,
With evil magick
Was he lured,
And down the Nile
Was laid.

Isis’ love
And magick touch
Did resurrect
Her King,
From Holy Spirit
Was conceived Horus 
The Falcon King.

Osiris, Lord
Of the Dead
O’er all souls
Presides,
Heaven or…
Underworld?
He alone decides.









Join in the fun: Compose a short story 
in 55 words and report back to the G-Man at

Very nice... I can see myself reading this in the shadow of the Pyramids...

You certainly DO know your Egyptology! I must confess that I love Egyptology. The "artist formerly known as my soulmate" is Egyptian and his first present to me was an ankh he bought for me at the base of the Great Pyramid.

I subscribed to netflix for the sole purpose of getting watching every Egypt special created by the Discover Channel.

Love these lines -- "Heaven or ... Underworld? He alone decides".

Very good, but is all that I could think about was the old Saturday TV show from years ago with Shazam and Isis! God, that makes me old!

Fandango said...

We remember this stuff from long ago. We dragons have been around a long time.
Very well done 55

Felicitas said...

Em & Kathleen - I'm not an Egyptologist but I do love a good myth and a challenge. There are so many details in this particular one, the difficulty was in not losing the integrity of it - every word really had to count.

Chris - Thank you for stopping by. I've checked out your post, as well, and it's fantastic!

Otin - LOL! I remember Shazam and Isis too!

ALL - Thank you for your lovely comments. I truly appreciate the positive feedback!
