Odin Stormbringer

I hear You in the rolling of the clouds

The wind sweeping up over trees

The soft whisper of rain as it strikes my face

I can feel You in each drop

Cleaning my face this morning

With a gentle touch

I feel You sweep over me

Like the storm you ride, I am so small

All I can do is stand, kneel, thank

That you surround me

For all the blessings You have given

For the joys and pains that placed me here

Kneeling to you in the grass

Your hands around my shoulders

The kiss of cleansing rain on my brow

Like the rain You embrace all I am, Father

Odin Project: Day 30

November 30, 2012 2 comments

This is the final day of the Odin Project for this 2012 year.  Thank you to Galina, who inspired me to be part of it, and everyone who has participated in it.  Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog through this month; I hope that the Odin Project has somehow touched you, or brought you closer to Him.

Long suffered He | who traded Eye and Life

for giving wisdom to the Worlds;

Praise to the Allfather | given in gratitude

for gifts heaped upon gifts

 

Hail to Odin | in times of peace

for its blessings are hard-won;

Hail to Odin | in times of strife

for oft does it visit

 

Ever-mindful is Odin | of His children

who wanders the whole of Midgard

Hugin and Munin | ever-watch and wheel

and speak news to His waiting Ear

Odin Project: Day 10

Seek under the Tree | hanging with taut rope

Yggr hangs, bleeding wisdom;

Seek in the Hall | seated in power

Alfaðir waits, far-seeing and grim

 

Seek on the Road | blue cloak wrapped tight

Gangleri wanders far, welcoming company;

Seek in the Wild | spear keen and gleaming

Wod preparing for battle

 

Seek on the Mountain | mouth open wide

Galdraföðer sings spell and enchantment;

Seek in the World | form ever-changing

Svipal walks and stalks

Wisdom long sought | between Well and Tree,

In all the Nine Worlds;

Bought with pain | earned by patience,

Is wisdom well paid

You stand atop | Yggdrasil’s branches

The great, all-seeing throne

No thing is hidden | beneath the gaze

Of the One-Eyed God
