Saturday Goddess Blogging

Lakshmi isn't traditionally considered a harvest Goddess. But she is associated with abundance and this time of year is all about abundance. More tomatoes than you know what to do with. Neighbors trying to give away their seckle pears. Queen Anne's Lace and Black Eyed Susans growing everywhere, in spite of the heat and the drought.

Amy Sophia Marashinsky wrote this poem about Lakshmi:

I am the ever-flowing outpouring of plenty
the inexhaustible
the never ending.
From the fullness of my being
I give richly and opulently
generously and copiously
luxuriously and liberally.
I am limitless
for I cannot be contained.
I am everywhere
and will never cease to be.

We at "The Gods Are Bored" salute Lakshmi and all Goddesses of abundance. Now, if you'll excuse us, we're putting up tomatoes today.
