Poem: "A Wordless Prayer"

This poem came out of the May 15, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by Anthony Barrette. It also fills the "animals" square in my 4-7-18 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo fest.


"A Wordless Prayer"


A cat lying on her back
silently begs to be petted,

and when petted, purrs,
sending a wordless prayer
to Bastet, Goddess of Cats.

All is well with the world,
says the purr, all is well.

Whenever Bastet
hears this prayer,
She makes it so.

Notes:

Bastet is the name of the cat-goddess Bast in her fully feline form.
