PBP: Hestia Poem

I´ve fallen a bit behind on the Pagan Blog Project. I haven´t felt inspired and I haven´t come up with any subject I´ve wanted to write about. But now I decided to research the goddess Hestia a bit, and write a poem, short and sweet! Perhaps it can also be seen as an evocation. Enjoy (hopefully)!

 

Hestia, first and last

Encircled, whole, complete

Centered in the heart

and fire of the hearth

Daughter of Rhea and Kronos

First reciever, honored one

Guardian of innermost things

Veiled flowerbearer

Bestow in my core

your sacred essence

    I think your Hestia poem is beautiful. As a student of Greek and other mythologies for over 35 years, I think you have captured the essence of that goddess. Thanks for clarifying for me what Hestia represents…
