NordLilyskins and bloodshot eyesNord by ~Seaxwulf
these are the twain that should have never met.
Burnt sands and darkened towns,
these are the legacies that we have wrought.
In another land and bloodswept time
the sins of the father came down through the son,
so now we turn our eyes to the mythic North,
where Thunder howls and Earth does growl.
For there, in the heart of our Soul,
a great white squall does bellow.
So kneel we down and let us pray,
the Fimbulwinter reigns to-day!
Asa-ThorShield of our worldAsa-Thor by *Lagaz-Runheim
Friend of mankind
Elder brother of the common being
May your strength enlighten our work
So we may achieve our goals
May we stand tall
to get through the day
No matter how heavy the load
Son of Odin
Wielder of Mjolnir
You have pat my shoulder
I have gotten up
to grow stronger
Hail to you, fiery one
Hail to you, Asa-Thor!
BloodBreathe in deep and hold your ground,Blood by ~Seaxwulf
take the quiet – there is no sound.
Choke the clatter and let it drown,
breathe in deep and hold it there,
and know your feelings come unbound.
It washes with you like a flood,
brings you up on ghostly wings!
Your heart, it beats to the Gallow-God’s drum,
your mind it flies in the blackest eye.
Scream a scream of health and kenning,
your soul shakes in your chest and coos to be free.
You are the world in which you live,
the soul in which gods breathe their first and last,
you are the ship in which the times have sailed,
and you are the barrow in which Wyrd makes merry.
See the flesh upon your bone,
like Sky stretched over Earth,
feel the blood beneath the sheath.
Lines like rivers throb within pale skin,
and below your ground there runs the reddening stream.
Life laughs within you,
for you are your yesterdays,
and you are your morrows,
the lie is in the now
for the Norn’s thread is ever spinning,
and you with it are carried like t
Hail OdinHail OdinHail Odin by *Lagaz-Runheim
Hear our call
For you have lost an eye to see more
Hail One-Eyed Wanderer,
May your wisdom influence those
who call upon you
And may we, too
Learn from our mistakes
and from our sacrifices
and from our sufferings
so that our wisdom of the world
increase many fold
Yggdrasil Sigrunnr Yggdrasil SigrúnnrYggdrasil Sigrunnr by ~VikingWidunder
Yonder came the one-eyed
Gungnir his faithful companion
Guardian of wisdom and pride
Dwelt he for nine days
Relying on his own strength
Along the bark, ancient blaze
Secrets carved in its lenght
Iron fist grasp the rope
Land bellow became darkness
sacrifice he gave for one's hope
injured by the spear's sharpness
glimmering light beyond the veil
reaching the edge of the horizon
unseen shores where he set sail
noble mind was enlightened
notable wisdom, his new dominion
runes of power, to mortals provided

Will to FollowI would have gone with youWill to Follow by ~UinenFirestar
Into the depths of darkness, and beyond
To save you from the loneliness, the pain
Never knowing if it could have ended differently
To save your sons, your legacy.
You know I would
How my heart bleeds out to hear you say again
Can’t I steal away the cold and bitter vengeance
The liquid flame, the haunting memory?
And didn’t you already pay the werguild?
In killing rage, she tracked you down
Thiassi’s doom, you met her challenge
And she laughed in spite of rightful pain.
How is it fair, what they did to you?
How can they say it is right?
Now you, and not they, are scorned and mocked
Called traitor by those who claim love for your brother
Cast into the shadows, forgotten.
I would have gone with you
Down the spiraling roads of madness
If you’d have my company, if it’d ease your pain.
Against the tide of Ragnarok, there can be no victory,
Where blood and death and tears are everlasting legacy.
ExorcismThe fire burns within me,Exorcism by ~Seaxwulf
burning away the dross that shaped me,
melted plastic covers the plains,
and the industrial ghost has fled the scene.
No crime against humanity is reckoned too great,
only sins against the system are held in courts of high regard,
for we are all cogs to the great machine;
so on your knees and grovel for your chosen god.
As for me and my own house,
our motto is this,
Plastic covers the plains,
cheap thrills and outlander’s poison;
these were the fires you sent me to stoke,
but the heat of your furnace melted the veneer.
And now I am myself again,
I trill with laughter
and I hum with glee,
as I pound my living in the Dwarven forge.
A primal fire can change a shape,
and so I find myself anew.
How can I keep from singing,
as I shape myself with glee?
I have peeled away the layers,
and shorn away the chaff,
in so losing one can only gain,
and in the dawning of another morning,
it will be my laughter which covers the face of the deep

God of Poets
Friend of Bards
May I never have
the experience of
having a writer's block
and the curse of
May your hand guide mine
to write beautiful songs
and to construct poetry
that stuns the readers
as the ink flows
from my pen
For the arts is the language of the soul
SigynSigyn and Loki wait in the damp twilit cave, listening to the eerie echoes of each poison drip and the sound of their own breathing. Sigyn holds a wooden bowl over Lokis face. Slowly, it fills with the venom of a snake coiled on the rock ceiling. When the bowl is brimming, Sigyn carries it away to empty into a rock basina fermenting pool of poison. Loki is left unguarded; he screws up his eyes. The snake does not wait. Its venom splashes on to Lokis face and in torment he shudders and writhes. He cannot escape, and the whole earth quakes in his struggles.Sigyn by *ErrantCrow
Loki lies bound. That is how things are and how things will remain until the destined apocalypse: Ragnarök.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.
Never were sweeter words of love spoken by a silver tongue than when he realized that she deserved to leave himand that he didnt love her enough to let her go. And so he told her romantic
