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 (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 (Tanka)

Do not fear your death

Bastet protects as armor

Securing your life

You shall not be defeated

By your mortal enemies
