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

planting the seeds
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

stalking liminal spaces
skuld rests a hand
on my shoulder
steadying me
before a beak
pierces my forehead
to let in the
shadowed light

here be monsters
tread carefully this home
in the underground
frozen in time
waiting for an axe
to break the ice
is center
so
too
is memory
lurking in wait

the journey begins:

the Path
crosses under dolmen thresholds
opening to the
spindle of worlds

this is dying
this is remaking
yew of the hollow
this is reshaping

i flow ocean
i fly breath
i seeth flame
i grave soil

returning to memories old
i ghost with the past
breathing in my all
to the clan to
which i was born

turning on returning
the journey begins
anew

hold on
to the beginning
&
the old ways

dancing with dice
riding a horse on the wind
through the nine &
for the nine &
over nine waves
singing on spiritbreath
spelling a new begin
