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

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

breathe with me
spirit me
shatter the shackles
binding me
fill me with your breath
& lift me to the sky
pour your fire
over my life

the time has come
to lay down arms
death is not dying
look back to see paths forward
see wealth not in coin
but in hamingja reborn

in each breathe, sing
begin the begin
&
seed the songs
full soulfire
spirit & spell
cry out as the lover
cry out & sing

creaking of the wheel
on the millhouse axel
turns still in bright sunlight
raven stands stoic
watching each revolution
in silence
seeing the long years
ahead

diving into dream
my hamingja
cleaves to me
dovetail burst
in silken black
drawing down to
loam & bone meal
ørlǫg & wyrd
fertile grounds
for self

i know nothing
i am even less
i sacrifice myself
to lose my self
to see the dawn
within

tracing my fingers
over your curves in
candlelight & afterglow
giving myself to you
as you give yourself to me
luxuriating
between sighs &
softly whispered oaths

it often falls to immutable ørlǫg
for our failed endeavors:
rage, senseless battles &
imbalanced energy flows forth
from the past

unfetter, quit clinging

the path towards spiritual wealth
is littered with obstacles
however
persistence and faith
in the face of adversity
leads to abundance
