From the Oak: Let’s hear it for the God!

Many are those that focus on female divinities, leaving male divinities in the shadows if they get mentioned at all. This is a shame. Here I will share my thoughts, stories and prayers on male divinities.

Chasca, Incan Goddess of Dawn and Dusk

The problem I am running into, as I try to fulfill my promise of writing something for each of the divinities placed in the atheists’ “god graveyard”, is trying to find enough information on some of the divinities.  For them, I tend to resort to poetry and prayers.  The Incan/Aztec divinities have been especially hard. As everywhere I look, there are the same miniscule bits of information, repeated over and over.  Not complaining, just stating the challenges I have faced in order to fulfill my promise.  This week’s divinity (#17) is Chasca, Incan goddess of dawn and dusk, symbolized by the planet Venus.

Chasca, Sun’s handmaiden

Goddess of the between times

glimpsed at dawn and dusk.

Maiden bless the morning dew

which is brushed from your curls

before your daily duties begin

refreshing the world each day.

Protect our young and innocent

who like your flowers

are easily crushed

protect them

for they are our future.
