Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

A tool to scry the sun.
A weave to braid the wind.
Belief that knuckles thunder.

Forest, branch, and ax.

A tool to mute the crow.
A curve to carry patience.
Time that raisins grief.

Laurel, dove, and ark.

Shears to prune the priest.
A rose to mount the season.
Word that weathers storm.

Quarry, rock, and chisel.

A quill to ink the night.
A joist to brace the silence.
Shame that feathers down.

A song, a note, a bow.

The key that drives the car.
The dream that travels north.
