Ra travels westward
Semktet he rows toward Egypt
His temple awaits-

    Thanks Kim- I used Ra because he is so well known as a sun god. Temu is not so well known.

    Intrigued, I googled to find (Egypt from Egyptian viewpoint): The Sun-god of Heliopolis is considered self created & creator of all. Around noon, when the sun is at its full power he is known as Ra. At sunset, when the sun is said to be weak and growing old, he is Tem or Temu. He travels across the sky with the sun upon his head in two boats. The boat used in the morning is called Matet, which means becoming stronger. From midday on he travels in the Semktet (growing weak) boat. Now, I enjoyed!
