Odin Project: Day 20

November 20, 2012 Leave a comment

Gangleri sought Völvas’ ways | and to Folkvangr came,

seeking the wisdom of Gefn;

She pierced Him through | and taught Him well,

In woman’s dress He learned

 

Well-wrought the lessons | at Skjálf’s feet

By fire and distaff spun,

Prophecy and power | came to Grimnir’s call

Who learned Hörn’s ways

 

Sviðurr He left | Freya’s golden hall,

ranging wide in Ve and stride;

Doors closed were open | ways unseen shown bright,

No thing held from Odin’s path

Loki Project Day 25

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

Loki Project Day 17

I was thinking on how Loki is a shapeshifter today, and tried for a while to write a poem and nothing would come.  Then, as I sat back, I breathed in and heard a drum, and bam! inspiration!  A drum-song for Loki, calling on Him as the Shapeshifter, asking Him to guide me in shapeshifting.

Chorus

O Holy One,

Set a Fire in my heart

That my skin might melt

Flowing between forms

 

Verse 1

Holy Mare

Mother of Sleipnir

Teach me the ways of Horse

 

Chorus

 

Verse 2

Holy Salmon

Swimmer of Waters

Teach me the ways of Fish

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

Holy Seal

Hunter in the Water

Teach me the way of Seal

 

Chorus

Verse 4

Holy Fly

Buzzer in the Air

Teach me the way of Insects

 

Chorus

 

Verse 5

Holy One

Fire and Flesh

Teach me the way to change my human form

 

Chorus
