Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #28 Loki’s Salmon

A stunning new approach to the myths the Vikings loved; enlightening and challenging for the novice and veteran alike.

The Gods and Goddesses of the Nordic Mythos Prose Poems were created following research for Gods Bless Ya!! Rock Opera with Alda and Sigrun Bjork Olafsdottir and a forth-coming book with SigRun Viking Art & Design.

Loki’s Salmon

 

Óðin tires of godly powers and wishes for adventure away from the pool that reflects the sun.

Loki suggests that they and Honir turn human and travel in Midgard.

The adventure goes well, Óðin enjoys walking along the banks of a river watching the birds diving for fish.

But then a belly ache like nothing he has ever felt before overcomes him. ”What is this terrible pain?”

“That,” Loki explains, “is hunger. I will hunt for us.

He spies a salmon leaping from the water. So he throws his spear. His aim is true, but as he throws an otter leaps from the bank.

The spear goes through both. How Loki laughs. How they all laugh. Two for the price of one throw. Loki makes a bag from the otter and Óðin picks up the massive salmon to eat. “No wait,” cries Loki, “it will be far better cooked.”

 

Just over the hill they can see smoke rising, so Loki says to climb. There is a cottage, so they knock at the door. The farmer Hreidmar was most welcoming, of course they would cook and share the salmon, and bring them bread and beer to accompany it. As they entered though he seemed to change, he whispered to his two sons and casting spells of weakening they three of them leapt upon their visitors. They took their magic items and bound the three of them upon the floor. “Why do this?!” cried Óðin.

I am a magician and every day I change the shape of one of my four children and as an Otter they go down to the river to catch us a salmon. So you have killed my son!

Now you will die.
