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.

Look suffering
straight in the eye.
Try not to blink.
Look beyond 
the long lashes,
the crusted tear ducts,
the crow’s feet,
the hazeled glaze.
the unruly display
of emotions,
and pride,
all vying for
your attention.
Yes, there!
See it?
In the corner
by the window,
in the country cottage,
swinging on its
tiny trapeze
in its gilded cage,
the titmouse,
patiently waiting
for spring
to return 
its early 
morning song.
