just throwing it out there...

ive been reading a book on goddess' and mythology. i just read about Isis, the egyptian goddess of the heavens. When her husband and lover (Osiris, with whom she shared a soul) was killed she treked all over the world searching for him. The book says this was her call:

"My tears flood the land.
They burn my face.
Do not forsake me, Osiris.
Come to your sister.
Take away the pain in my body.
You who never found fault with me.
Do not leave me.
Heaven has fallen through to earth.
I walk the roads searching for you.
Fire burns in my heart.
I grieve that you are alone.
I stretch my arms out to greet you."
-(a goddess is a girls best friend by laurie sue brockway)

it reminded me of walt whitman. leave it to me to find a walt whitman correlation...

"Hither, my love!
Here I am! Here!
With this just-sustain’d note I announce myself to you;
This gentle call is for you, my love, for you.

Do not be decoy’d elsewhere!
That is the whistle of the wind—it is not my voice;
That is the fluttering, the fluttering of the spray;
Those are the shadows of leaves.

O darkness! O in vain!
O I am very sick and sorrowful.

O brown halo in the sky, near the moon, drooping upon the sea!
O troubled reflection in the sea!
O throat! O throbbing heart!
O all—and I singing uselessly, uselessly all the night.

Yet I murmur, murmur on!
O murmurs—you yourselves make me continue to sing, I know not why."
-(from out of the cradle endlessly rocking by walt whitman)
