Month for Loki, 6: Trickster (poetry)


A lovely poem about Loki by Sophie Oberlander:


by Sophie Oberlander

“I never sought You.
Those places deep within my heart were far too burned and scarred
To let You in, hard like misshapen stone.
Or so I thought. But I gave much
The first time I hung on that Tree.
Not enough, by far, but just enough to shatter that wall of stone
The barest fragment breaking free.
I heard Your whisper, but turned aside my face
You could not be speaking to me.
I felt Your gentle touch cradling my wounded spirit
As You cradled Odin,
His body bloodied, His spirit on fire beneath that Tree
Long before I climbed its branches.
Was it through Your laughter that You taught me to love You?
Or through the tenderness of Your caress?

Imposters Among Us

b.AM Muses

Religion has always been a susceptible tool to be used for abuse. People will claim to speak for deity, and sometimes even claim to BE deity. To a rational person, these people should be easy to recognize. At the very least, that’s what we often tell ourselves. That’s not to say that those who fall for it are at fault. The human mind is a complex thing that colors our choices with emotions that can make it difficult to discern when something is not quite right.

Happy Father’s Day

Gangleri's Grove

Fathers-Day-2019-Images-Wallpapers-Quotes-Wishes-And-Greetings-2019Day 5 – For Loki

You, Loki, are the most tender-hearted of Gods.
No one knows this save Sigyn. You keep it well hidden,
preferring to present to the world a mask of careless abandon,
and to Your family a façade of unbreakable strength.
Sigyn is onto You though, this wife Whom You love beyond all others.
She knows You well and She has seen Your eyes, bright and shining
as You cradled Your sons in Your arms. She has seen You,
when all masks fall away as You play and wrestle with Your children,
those You have with Her, and those shapeshifting wildlings: serpent, wolf,
and Lady of grace and death. You are laughing, loving clay in Their little sometimes grubby, hands.

She has seen, Oh Wildfire God, the joy with which You scoop Them up,
sweet and clumsy little toddlers with their delightful cries of “Papa.”
She has…
