Bastet and Anubis (Tanka and Haiku)

 

Since I really enjoy writing in the haiku and tanka forms I decided to write one haiku and two tankas for the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Heeding Haiku With HA: To Egyptian Mythology Prompt.

Anubis

Anubis

Anubis (Tanka)

Souls in transition

Under sacred watchful eyes

Do not be afraid

Anubis is guiding you

Into life everlasting

~

Anubis (Haiku)

Fear not the jackal

He is not what he appears

Anubis protects

~

Bastet

Bastet

Bastet (Tanka)

Do not fear your death

Bastet protects as armor

Securing your life

You shall not be defeated

By your mortal enemies
