Futhark update: sowilo added

©2022 Michael Raven

I’ve revised my interpretations of sowilo (ᛋ) based on additional reference material, inner reflection, and meditation. Rune poems and other writing referencing this rune moving forward will use the revised interpretations.

Once all runes have be reworked, I will migrate the old interpretations to the archive to maintain link integrity and for historical references.

back home | status quo
unless...

dawnrazor cutpiercing
remains of ribbonsrent
scatterling breezewise
when knockering doorwayed
engaged locks held tenacious
virtual steel

cannot help but
wonder if forced change comes

Note: For the purposes of these runepoems, I randomly select three runes and consider the meanings of each rune as I interpret and understand them based on a number of different resources, which may or may not be in alignment with accepted interpretations. I am a rune enthusiast, not an expert or scholar. These “runecasts” are not intended to be treated as divinatory, although there are elements of personal alchemy and shamanic practice in the crafting of each poem.

at hel's outer chambers
we stand

is this the end
or is it
just a beginning?

whispers in the shadows
& the tolling solitary bell
suggest an answer

here, sparks dance
i hang once again
stretching downward
to touch
beneath the surface
that treasure
maddeningly out
of reach

i seek the low places
none of those places in the sky
i seek the same places as water
those worlds most leave alone
i cast away ritual
i cast away words
i cast away intellect
i cast away it all

what comes this?
tonight, curtains drawn
drauger scorned & gone
stripped down birched & raw
blackthorn this twitch & twixt
turn & twine
weave & bind
set to watch & ward
inside
the path, the path
opening

digging dirt
in the everpresent
found treasures
already possessed
fire & ice
converge

compassion
empathy
two ravens piercing
here is reward
here is renewal
after the clash
fire & ice

energy rising
namesake walking
the edge of myrkrlands
seething red hot
those ladies prepare to
push me over the precipice
to fall
or to fly

the waystation
is not the destination
following waterways
to the edge
where the mind
meets emotion
meets center
meets me
