A Song For Heimdall

Heimdall,
You are the silent God

You arrive, you turn your head
I see your eyes, I see you’ve seen
You see me, your eyes tell so much
But you say nothing

It seems your voice has been lost in space and time
Did you lose it to the Void when you made the sacrifice ?
For it is the depth of the Void that I feel in you

There is only your eyes, your eyes that tell so much
I look at you, and you at me, and I see
I see through you, it seems I hear
But I know I don’t

Your eyes are like the well of Mimir
I can lose myself into them
I feel the depth without end
I feel the knowledge supreme

But where does your heart lay ?
Inside the water of the well
I feel the darkness and the ache
I feel a shell that has been emptied

What is this suffering ?
Where is the center of your being ?
I feel a lament from the sea
The melancholia and the ache

It is enclosed in your being
Heimdall, silent God,
Is there no cure to your wounds ?

But I feel the wave rolling,
A last look full of meaning,
A door that closes as your turn back
And the vision fades away

Adoration to Heimdall by Salena

I found this marvellous piece by Salena about Heimdall who I’m beginning to work with, and I wanted to share it.

I adore you sire of mankind

I adore you whitest of Gods

I adore you friend of Mardoll

I adore you son of undines

I adore you defender of Brisingamen

I adore you God of light

I adore you of the wet back

I adore you teacher of runes

I adore you golden tooth

I adore you lone ear

I adore you keeper of Bifrost

I adore you God of boundaries

I adore you rider of Gulltopr

I adore you mysterious God

I adore you brewer’s grandchild

I adore you secretive friend

I adore you Thor’s vexer

I adore you Trickster’s foe

I adore you Freya’s loyalty

I adore you honor’s beacon

I adore you wry neck

I adore you sounder of Gjallorhorn

I adore you guardian of Gods

I adore you of the rainbow

I adore you warrior friend

I adore you whose horn carries the waters of Mimir’s well

I adore you who sees a hundred leagues

I adore you who hears wool grow

I adore you of the gentle storm

I adore you who pledged your hearing

I adore you who hears the spindle

I adore you bright brother to Loki

I adore you sea battler

I adore you slayer of Lopt

I adore you slayed by Lopt

I adore you of the eternal stiff back

I adore you birthed of nine elements

I adore you nourished of the sap of the earth

I adore you nourished of the ice-cold sea

I adore you  nourished of the boar’s blood

I adore you irminsul of my soul

I adore you shining bloom

I adore you world flourishing

I adore you bright dazzler

I adore you of quiet humor

I adore you glittering coat

I adore you of the curved horn

I adore you weaver of patterns

I adore you of the woodpecker’s peal

I adore you of the contemplative moment

I adore you gentle love
