Yesterday's PBP post got me thinking about the five gods whose images have been on my altar for years but who haven't made it into my daily devotions yet, because sometimes I am lame. I am hereby and officially adding them.

of love and of loss, I praise and honor you.

the ambrosial cup, I praise and honor you.

the feverish steeds before it, I praise and honor you.

on her brow, watchful one, I praise and honor you.
