The Promise of the Runes

 

sleipnir

Looking at reflections in jagged shards
of a shattered mirror,
The fall of twilight’s shadow
grows ever nearer,
But when you see the reaping angel
There’s no real reason to fear her.
Remember the words and visions
of the blind Nordic seer
The promises made of runes
sworn on the life of Sleipnir:
Bridges will burn, stars will fall,
Witness it with your own eyes.
Life wanes, blood flows,
Darkness alone fills the skies.
Smoke will settle, the fires cool,
And the Sun will once again rise.

Note: Sleipnir is pronounced “Slayp-near”

  1. Runes! I know next to nothing about them but for some reason, ever since I heard about them I’ve been drawn to them and fascinated by them! Thank you for writing this 😊❤️
