Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #30 Loki’s Monsters

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 Monsters

 

The shape changer god no longer knows what he is. The change of shapes so often, takes away the god-like sense of human-form, until a part of him is monstrous.

Even at his birth, when lightning took away his mother, he had to survive, he had to change. To hunt, to hide, to feed, to climb.

What monster in a god’s form entered Asgard?

He was embraced as blood-brother. Here he could be equal, and, he loved; his beloved wife and children, to them he was fair and loyal and true. Yet he felt the call to share his love, to fly away – He went with Giant-woman Angrboda. Went with her often. They had children.

 

If ‘children’ is what they were. A snake. A wolf. A half dead daughter. There wildness, there corruption, the danger of them spread as word to gods. They must be stopped.

Now. Jormungand the Midgardyrm is cast into the sea, to grow and fume and wait. The wolf they could not kill, they tricked it: tied it down to howl and wail and strain with magic dwarven ribbons holding him. The daughter; blackened half, commandingly beautiful in half; she was cast to the very deep.

“Become the queen of all the death, the cowardly dead, the trickster dead, the oath breaker. – Keep them, keep them.” So hollered High-seat god of all the worlds.

How Loki fumed. It turned his heart. They were not monstrous to him. They were his monsters. They were his offspring. See ahead how bitter are his deeds because of this. “My children! My monsters! My offspring!”
