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.

In unison
one hundred and fifty gay Santas
in their little red suites
and clip-on beards
stop singing
and start signing
Silent Night.
Three hundred gloved hands
white like doves
take flight
offering the carol
to our eyes -
and we hear it like nothing
we’ve ever heard before.
And our hearts break open
and the ten thousand tears
that spirit from us
are like an ovation
feathered in grace.
