Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #29 Loki

 

Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #29 Loki

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

 

Shape-shifter’s little tricks, he giggles, led to laughter, much mirth led to anger, bitterness fired onwards, onwards to the very end of us. He is smited and will not be broken. Die all of you as he laughs, ‘What a party! Good times to die for.’ Loki of mischief madness has spoken.

The Stark Babe

 

What a birth, in the madness. This is the iron wood of pure steel, these trees are impossible, like thorns. There was the lightning, the storm, and there was the birth. Baby to a giant, she dies there. Lightning struck her as her baby was born. This stark babe who is born to end worlds. Son of Cruel Striker, he left there. Shape-changer. He should be dead, but his shape changed. We will never know but chrisilid, may fly, succubus, something that survived. It climbed.

There was Asgard. And it walked in unnoticed and proclaimed to belong. To entertain.

Perhaps he Laughed

 

Mischievous at first – he entertained. Oh the fun, and the adventure. They travelled together. The one who would be for the future, the handsome one Hænir and the All-father and he. Oh the joy to be.

Now as a god he could go where he pleased and become who he wished.

Cutting the hair was a mistake of a trick which he did. Abducting of Iðun he never meant really, saving his master from a murderer, he did things. Insults are something. He never meant harm to the Gods, to the Worlds, to the humans, to the future, he never meant to get to be as bad as he was.

In the end, he meant to kill Balder, he went from there to the end of the world.  He meant it when he destroyed worlds. Perhaps he is laughing still.

Fly Loki Fly

 

No ride with this, go with him, fly with Loki. Join that dream. For he rose high, storming wild on a huge rising ship full of fearfulness. He flew there as leader. To victory. To death. To the end. Nothing he hated survived. Go with that. Thrive.

Long had his daughter worked for this; building his ship. Dead bits she lingered. She fingered the placing of them until the right moment. He called for her. He stood there at the helm of the ship of his daughter. His army stepped forward; rock, ice, fire, death – yes.

Loki wins.

 

 

Follow Loki

 

Worship him. The evil old woman. Giantess. Abductor. Whisperer to the blind. Go with his way with a jolly laugh. Follow him. You are of his kind.

Huggin and Munnin

 

 

Óðin sat upon his great stone slab. From his high seat he could see everything. He could see the nine known worlds and all the other worlds as well. He saw two ravens and he called them to him. They landed upon his shoulders and whispered to him. They were Huggin and Munnin; Thought and Memory. He would send them out into the world, they would see all and remember. They knew just what was important and what should be remembered. They landed back upon his shoulders and whispered in his ears.

Now he could see everything and he knew everything as well. The All-Father of all the Gods.

Óðin

 

In Gold helm and mead-in-hand how he laughs at your struggle fighter. Be brave in front of him, Óðin One-eye All-father shall call upon you. Giant of a magician he rose up in power to be older than all which came before. He sees everything about you.

Ever Now

 

Read on if you want to be horrified, hesitate if you wish to admire him. Óðin who was not even a God. He who was born later than many Gods. All-Father. He who was Treasure-seeker. This is the power that captured all powers who failed in the end for he foresaw that end and knew he had failed us. There was nothing he could do but die. This is the very whisperer who returned as a song. A love song.

Nothing Ends

 

Yes, his very runes and songs live on and they bring peace and plenty. They make wishes of you that you yearn to wish for. Hear not after his death; his resurrection, the songs of a warrior. There is warmth and healing here and there is little else in the end.

Foreseen

 

Vili and Ve marched with him as he set the boundaries and threw the stars. They will have been with him as he climbed the great tree.

He looked around and pledged to build a city.

He knew there were powers out there and he wanted them. All wisdom would be his. He would gather and father and foster until he had a God-home here. In the walls he calls Asgard are all of the treasures a God needs.

Apples, and golden hair, high seats and spears, Ravens and far-seeing ones and seeresses of great magic, in his head are the runes and the wisdom and the songs. Words are more powerful than magical things it would seem. He had it all. And the powerful ones to follow him.

He had the gift of foresight and foresaw the end. There was nothing he could do in the end. At the end.

Rune. Song. Word.

 

A troublesome being he adopted saw to it and twisted everything.

No matter though. Worlds end. All nine worlds end. The God who has one eye he will rise again. In song. In his songs and his brothers, but most of all in song. For he gained the runes of healing and safety and prosperity and peace. They are his.

Call on him. Ask for them from him. Worship for them if you will. For he is the All-father of the tomorrow and we sing what he gathered as magic.

Rune. Song. Word.

Strong Will Be Here

 

He started us before he climbed, he and his brothers. He watched us and became our God of Battle. Twisting and shaping at whim. For we are only down here to go to him. Live to die. Live to fight. Live to die in his Valhalla for we will walk again and fight anew at Ragnarok. Gird well my friends for you are measured in the eye. The one eye.

Valkyries bring and he watches. For he sits with Saga at the pool and long sees the reflection of the wolf that chases the moon in ripples there as he drinks and thinks and ponders what he has seen.

Here at Sokkvabekk; sinking floor, with Saga here, bring drink in golden goblets ever more.

Bring fighters for me now. Let them adorn themselves and harmless fight yet feel the pain. For they will at last live again and I must see what strength they still attain.

Entertain me he thinks and it is so. For Bragi poet brings for him the famed, the leader and the poet. The strong will be here.

Among Us

 

Be a seer like a shaman, send out your spirit. Ride in shapes or on Sleipnir. It is an ongoing fun and a way of being alive to ride high. He sees everything and still wishes to be surprised. Was a woman one moment, so Loki says. As an evil doer, a usurper, as a burning victim of a wife’s won argument. He rides and he flies, at a whim.

When all of the drama it ends and he can see the end, he may well be glad of the end, for there is no more than being everything, and once done everything, why go for more.

He rose high as a song; a whispered song.

His Being

 

In the meantime he has a spear. Gungnir, it starts wars, it spreads fear. It can be lent to a leader to turn things for him. It can be thrown at an interloper. Óðin laughs to think of his spear.

His wide-brimmed hat and his fine blue cloak.

His being a serpent.

His self-sacrifice.

Oh Yggdrasill of two words, ‘terrible one’ and ‘horse’ – Óðin is terrible yes and you tree are the horse he rides.

He hung on a tree, he suffered a spear, he plucked out an eye, he laid on a fire, he searched long and wide, he looked and he saw; he saw death in the end.

Ah those ravens of beauty how lovely, so faithful.

He lives in the land of the slain in contention to her who lives in the land of the slain. He is Óðin.

Yes, Valhalla is near, it is vast and gold-bright, and each day he chooses from the slain.

Then we feast.

He Who…

 

He who would Blood Eagle, he who succeeds without Iðun, who would favour one dwarf brother over another, he who loves poetry, he who throws eyes to the nightsky, he who gives laughter, he who Fenrir shall swallow, he who grieves for ever for Balder, he who summons berserkers at need, he who will ride again, he who whispered, he mixed blood with Loki..

Loki gave him a horse that could travel to Hel and back, think on that.

Nine be the number of songs, twice times nine be the number of runes, nine be the nights, nine be the ride to the underworld, nine be the rings, nine.

Hel visitor. Raised Angraboda. Caused war and the ripping of flesh at a whim to make Freyja the Goddess of Death.

He who was Od.

Never Trust

 

Never trust the words of a woman they change with the moon

Men; the fairer our words the falser our thoughts

Óðin Borsson

Cargo God

 

Born of Bor, born of Buri, born of ice and Audumla; Ice Giant.

As Fjolsvid – wide wisdom – Óðin built the hall Gastropnir from the very limbs of a giant.

Cargo god.

Bearded Harbard had five winters on the Isle of Algron.

Óðin he enticed Nightriders from their mounts!!!!! For Nightmare rode then as she does now.

Leave Gold-helm a clump for his horse when you harvest and sing of him as you always have.

This is the god that hurls serpents, bets heads, listens to chanters stool visitors, visits uncles, blesses heads, drinks from springs, listens, talks to the dead, drinks only wine, leads all to Vigrid with golden helm and shining corselet.

He knows it is time to die.

Rán

 

 

Ran has moods and whims and welcomes all favours. Come Gods and drink her ale, come sailors and drown for her, Ran sends daughters the waves to entice you, pray for safety, she laughs at your audacity.

 

Cold Pale Eyes Call

 

Goddess of the sea if you dare to think of her that way. For she is of the deep the unthinkable deep. That which you glide across in fear and bravery and foolishness. Will you home-turn sharply, will you land somewhere, will you prosper, will you sink here? Yes, it will be one of these things. As for returning successfully. That is another journey.

Nine

 

 

Nine is the most powerful number and this is the nine in one, the daughters, the personification of her; her offspring as one in the nine, they are the waves. They dance for her. They bring for her. Kill for her. Are you of the waves as you sail? Will they find you and bring you. Pray if you can to someone. Dance in the eye of the most perfect of storms. Rán.

Drink In

 

 

 

Aegir and her, wedded to the ocean bed, brew for the Gods and they laugh at the near-dead souls of sailors and travellers. Princess and child-trades and livestock and treasures and promised brides. All dance in the mad prance of the entertainment of Rán here. Down here.

This is the place to party if you wish it or dare it. Go drown yourself. There is beer here.

Suffer To Dance

 

 

Travel to the Isle of Hlesey, their great hall is under the sea if you would. Gleaming gold lights their halls as dead sailors dance; screaming their ever-help for her sick amusement. Did you sail dears? Did you. This is the bottom of the ocean and you travelled here didn’t you darlings. So shiver. Scream and shiver bless.

This is the place for a gathering, a party, a celebration or a remembrance, this is the place of the party host; dance sufferings dance now.

Water Whirler

 

 

Water Whirler sits here, he is miles deep, he is a cauldron and if you wish it once he will fill with beer. Wintertide Water Whirler. Again and again you could drown in him and all be forgotten. Say, Brew beer.

Nothing she needs is unavailable to her, for here is her net, a wishing net, a fishing net, an ever-filling, ever-fulfilling net. Whatever she calls for as she casts, that is what she gets. Go fishing.

It catches wild pike who have gold rings, it catches the death of nations, it catches lost Valkr, it catches whatever she wishes. Oh she wishes. Yes she can wish; wish oceans.

Deep Party

 

 

She will always be there in your deep.

This all seems twisted and evil, but the gods don’t seem to mind so much; as long as there are parties. Even Njord visited with Skaði.

Thank Thor and Tyr. They made her party continue.

Beyond Hlesey are the Stormy Seas of Elivagar, if you thought there was somewhere safer.

Do not dare the Rocking Oceans built by the brothers from the blood of their enemies. Have you the heart for it.

She has as many moods as her sea, perhaps she will blow well and calmly.

Enter her Rocking Oceans carefully.

Have you, have you the heart for her?

Sól

 

Sól will be reborn in time, at her death the light will shine and the Sun Sólsdottir will rise again. Day-born, Spring-born, World-end-reborn look not directly on Sól’s beauty; her Chariot-dawn in blindness but feel her joy bathing you in promise.

Sól the Mangled Sun

 

Known of ancients as Althroful – the Elf-beam

Three brothers all Borssons they snatch at the sparks flying and cast them to the sky. Stars, Moon and the Sun.

Sun is the destined one who flies high the Sun. Forever in day she flies riding her chariot. Pulling the Sun in the fear of the Skoll. He snatches and bites and will catch her one day.

 

Death to her bitten, swallowed, gulped down in the wood made of Iron where her sparks of heat now rebound about.

The Iron Wood east of Midgard which birthed the wolves burnishes now with her fire.

Seize in his jaws she spatters Asgard with her gore as all stars go.

One day, one fine day.

Early-waker Arvak and Alsvid All-strong are still working for her. Tugging and racing ahead of their chariot, ahead of her, Sun, ahead of the Sun and ahead, so far, of Skoll.

Wolves win in the end of you let them. Yet think of the sun days we have had and enjoyed.

Champing at bits the horses of the sky bring us dew for the morning growth. Glistening under their sun.

We live at the strength of the glowing embers brought for us by the brothers. Be nourished in their glow.

Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #21 Iðun’s Apples

Norse Gods and Goddesses Prose Poems – #21 Iðun’s Apples

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.

Iðun’s Apples

 

“Let us have another adventure!” “Let’s be humans again and travel off away in Midgard.” Oðin and Hænir readily agreed and off they went. Again as it was with Oðin he was shocked to feel the pain of hunger and wondered what could be done. “If you light a fire I will soon return with food, Hænir come with me,” called Loki.

When they returned Hænir was struggling to carry a huge Oxen. Oðin placed it upon a spit and they sat and watched it cook. They sat and watched it cook. They sat and watched it cook. “It isn’t cooking” “It is just as raw as it was before.”

“Something is working against us.”

“Something up here.”

Above upon a branch sits a great eagle, far too big to be believed.

“Let me eat my fill and all the meat will be cooked.”

As soon as they agreed the eagle swooped and took the lot.

Loki was enraged and leapt upon the huge creature with a great branch to strike upon its back. The branch struck, it stuck in his hand, the eagle flew, he took Loki hanging behind. How Loki squealed. The eagle gave him quite a ride, dragging him through tree tops. Scraping him along the ground. Across the glacier. Till Loki wild with agony had hardly any skin upon his back and knees. ”You will help me or I will not let you go.” “I promise; I will do anything.” “Bring me the beautiful Iðun and her powerful apples.” “This I cannot do.” The eagle dragged him over rocks, over glacier, through the trees, the rocky ground. “I will do anything. I will do this thing you ask. I promise.”

Within the week the orchard garden had a visitor. “Iðun, beautiful, Iðun you would never believe what I have seen. Come with me, come with me. Golden apples just like these. Golden apples on a tree. Ooooo bring these.” So Iðun went with him. The eagle swooped and had her. Took her with her apples to his immense castle. Yes this was Thiazi, mighty giant.

 

Oh how the Gods would suffer. In no time at all they crumbled, bumbled, mumbled, stumbled. Muttering they cluttered up the place in their old age. As memory faded Oðin wondered who it was who was missing.

Someone remembered the beauty of Iðun.

Someone remembered the beauty of Frejya, “She has gone.”

“No I am here,” said a bald old lady in the corner.

“There was another one though. A trickster one.” “Where is he?”

They found Loki, found him sleeping, tied him, bound him. “Bring her back to us!” Frejya stripped off her gown of feathers, “Fly as falcon Trickster One, and bring her back to us.” It was easy, Thiazi and his daughter Skaði had gone fishing. He landed, cast a spell and Iðun was a nut. He popped her in his pocket. Put on his feathers and flew away safely. No. Thiazi came back. It is a long long way to Asgard and Eagles are faster than Falcon. Thank the gods for ravens, Oðin’s ravens saw and warned and all the gods build pyres of firewood. As Loki flew over and in the gods lit fires, bursting flames on the monstrous Giant in his eagle form. He fell down and stumbling old gods they fell upon.

Oh how they laughed to see Iðun back and handing round her apples.
