A Month With Loki #3

When the most incredible things happen….

Is it you, that new energy pervading everything ?
Is it you, this subtlety when they said you were nothing but chaos ?

Is your power in our world so efficient, so palpable ?
Does it take nothing but to ask ?

They said to be careful what you pray for
They said you’d better be prepared

Then why is there no storm, no big bang ?
How can I know whether it is you ?

I feel the wind of change…

Is that you, God of Light,
Capable of such softness ?

Is that you, Revealer,
Who lifted the curse of blindness ?

Did I ask, or did you choose to act ?
You protected the most important…

If that is you, really you, that came
To the help of my family

Then there is no end to my gratitude
Please send me signs of your presence



An Hymn to Skadi

Lately, I’m literaly overwhelmed by Norse Gods, which is quite unusual since I was never “closed” to this pantheon (I couldn’t feel anything). But Frigg made a violent entry which seems to be very important in my spiritual life, and behind her came all the other. So tonight, against all odds, I’m inspired by Skadi, and I devote to her this modest hymn :

Skadi Goddess of Eternal Winter
You shine with the blue glow
Of sparkling Snow

Skadi Goddess of Primal Forces
You’re as hard as rocks
And as solid as mountains

Skadi Goddess of Wild Lands
You walk untamed earth
As free as air

I hear Thy name
And I see twinkling snow
White deserts of ice

I hear Thy name
And I feel the biting breath
Of the Norse Wind
