The Messengers:
Huginn og Muninn


The black bodies of the ravens
touching boundaries of time.

            Scanning for news,
scanning for wisdom,
to bring to the hollow
eye of their master.

They feed on knowledge,
feed on gossip,
spit it in the hungry ears of Odin.

He will never stop craving for more,
               more depth, more power.

They soar high and low
in every corner of the human factor
they soar within undreamt dreams,
within thoughts that are being born.
               And they bring it all
to their master.

And he may or he may not spill his
overflowing wisdom to the less knowing.

Birgitta Jonsdottir    Womb of Creation
