The Runes as Gnomic Utterances

Heimdall’s Aett // (Link to Tyr’s Aett) // (Link to Freyr’s Aett)

Hagalaz

Screaming against the wind
Let the tide take you
Beneath these waves, where
The sky’s fury cannot touch us

Nauthiz

Nothing else could possibly feel this way
The gentle ache of embers in your heart
Always glowing, ever longing
Desperate, dying, never dead
A waking dream, fading in the light of day

Isa

Blue eyes frozen in the winter
Haunt you like moonlight on snow
When they melt you’re sure to fall

Jera

The scent of blood and bone
A battlefield strewn with poppies
The war is over and everything hurts but
steam rises from hot springs and
we forget the fallen for a time

Eihwaz

Small promises, whispered
Strong arms, encircling
Learning to trust again

Perthro

This broken glass makes no sound, only
echoes, engraved in your skin
In curling cursive script
We make our own truth
Under fleeting darkness

Algiz

The trees bend but do not break
Though we may fall, we grow again
And while the forest might protect us
from the world, we are
wary of what lurks within

Sowilo

Climbing trees to touch the sun
that she might kiss us at dawn
and tuck us in at dusk
Fear the zenith, for she burns
all who lie before her

As usual, I’m late to the party. But as they say, it’s the thought that counts, so here is my follow forever. All of these are blogs I have been enjoying over the past year (or longer), the list consisting of ones belonging to people I have come to view as good friends (bolded), acquaintances, and mutual follows, as well as blogs I have been admiring from afar even though their owners most likely have no idea I even exist. Considering I follow five hundred people I have probably forgotten someone while going through the list, and for that I apologize.

Thank you for filling my dashboard with awesome, and I wish all of you a fantastic 2014.
