Sobek, Lord of Dawn

Glorious lord of depths and cataracts,
crocodile rising at the river’s edge,
holding us gently like a fragile egg
until the day we go forth into life.

Nurture us, Sobek — Sobek, Lord of Dawn!
Bathe us in sunlight in Your Name of Ra!
Devour those who come with evil hearts!
Protect us, Sobek — Sobek!


Notes: Written in January 2012, for the prompt “crocodile” in an Art-a-Day challenge on the House forums.
