My Writings

Rootless

Try to think in a grander way, the guru said, eyes clad in smoke, not to peddle cheap ideas on the street, struggling to sell, but learn to wait. There is no telling what you might hear if you just sit still. A tongue eager to tell its tales, fight against it, every day, wage […]

My Writings

Speak for Yourself

You have trembled in the cold for too long, you have forgotten the warm nights of Summer. Those nights, radiating sweet, hot darkness, ease on the mind, they are my mother. Hold my face in that moment. We are souls at play. That is our leela. From that quivering body of bliss I emerged, as […]

My Writings

A Paper Dam

Words strung out, like bows, for those who can read. Runes carved in stone, whispers in the wind, a secret message, and another to follow it. Follow along, I will show you, but knowledge must be earned. A debt of life and strength, a toll, so bitter, like burning letters from a lover. Cannot be […]

My Writings

Mystery is Honey

If I am destined to remain deluded, then let me be deluded in the right way. One thought after another, set me on a path of crumbs, throw me a rope of knots. Believing one chalice to be golden, then seeing it for the tin that it is, only to strike gold elsewhere. Pyrite, fool’s […]

My Writings

The Word of Freedom

To be visited by good, healthy thoughts. Ease in the air, lightness within, friends in a circle, manifesting joy instead of need. To be able to give, an exchange of kind words. To smile warmly and honestly, eyes lighting up, cheerful, like a full row of white teeth, healthy and strong – I want my […]

My Writings

Clarity

A toothless wolf, how can you punch my teeth in, a faceless mask, how can you deface me? Mental fortitude stands between me and you like a meter of steel. In the depth of misery, at the height of anguish, I sought answers feverishly. I could not wander too long in the mists of self-pity. […]

My Writings

Laguz

The sun shines equally over all, except those who hide in caves, hearts caved in. And me… only a thin fiber of light upon my face. The roof of my hall is wet wood, more apt to obscure the sun than shelter from rain. Heavy drops, like tears, like thoughts of a prior life lost […]

My Writings

Breaker of Ice

You have many names, but I cannot speak them, I have taken a vow of silence. Still their presence is strong. You are near to me now, underneath my skin, so close. I do not hear your breath, but instead the rushing of your river, flowing undisturbed in its one direction. It was me whose […]

My Writings

Vegvisir

No longer aware of day and night, no longer following the seasons, the wheel of the world fell from its great axis and rolled down the hills. Waking up, falling asleep – meaningless. Somehow awake, but not truly, someone who acts in the world but without a thread to bind step to step. Silence fills […]

My Writings

The Innkeeper

My eyes, at the foot of the great mountain, shot an arrow into the heights where its peaks disappear into fine mist. And longed to climb them. Unencumbered by the heaviness of the dream, not yet, I began the march upward, and the distance – made small by my young perception, appeared tame and docile. […]
