She’s a Goddess
Calm, bright
Sitting in the golden
Aspect of Sekhmet
She says its the quieting
For us to quiet so
She won’t have to
Our protection is akin to
Frog medicine,
The essence of water
We are not washing our hands
To kill the virus
But as an offering
Water running over
Our palms
While we sing

– Valerie A. Szarek
