Faces of Dionysos

March 13, 2018 Leave a comment

Ivy-climbed hands lift

The swollen fruit high

Laughter peals across the vineyard

 

Hooves shake Earth

The neck bends back

Blood swells from the cloven throat

 

Practiced hands lower

The mask cover over

Gods descend among the theater

 

Teeth rend flesh

The sacrifice is taken

Bite by bite from death to life

Loki Project Day 25

July 25, 2012 2 comments

Your mane flashes in the sunlight

I see You, Horse-Lady

Running across snow-clad clearings

As though shot from a cannon

 

Your body powers up the stream

I see You, Salmon-Lord

The scales of Your body flashing silver

A million mirrors under Sunna’s charge

 

Your slick, grey body darts, dexterous

I see You, Seal-Lord

The teeth snap, the fish cracks

Your maw devours Its prey

 

Buzzing of Your wings fills my ears

I see You, Fly-Lord

Your multi-faceted, jeweled eyes seeing all

From countless angles

 

The staff taps the ground, ponderous

I see You, Elder Lady

The form bent, crooked with years

And Wisdom’s toll

 

Your green eyes alight

I see You, Fire-Lord

Inside the candle flame, dancing

The sweaty wax pooling beneath

 

You whisper a joke and a deft slap to my head

I hear and feel You, Trickster-Lord

Your wide grin and laughter

Fills me with delight

 

Every Form unmistakable

I see You, I hear You, I feel You, I know You, Loki

Carrying Your solemnity and sarcasm

Your biting Wit and your salving Voice
