Goddesses of the Past
Posted May 8th, 2012 at 09:58 AM by MinoanGoddess
Athena, Aphrodite, Artemis, all now lost in the past, their existence forever buried in the temples of the ancients.
Temples, votives, vases created to honor you.
But, the mortals of the present have forgotten you. Your temples are silent, only whispers of present day visitors can be heard.
There are no voices to call upon your sacred names, no rites performed in your honor, no animal sacrifices offered to appease you, no votives placed in your temples as tokens of faith.
Your existence has been obliterated, oh pure goddesses of the past, only remnants of your monuments have remained.
Your devoted servants had worshipped you for over 1,000 years, how cold is the human heart to forget you, you the goddesses.
The belief of your existence is gone, so your presence is forever lost, you are mere memories of the past.
