Baldur

His downfall
a strange twist to fate
like for so many others.

Just like the messengers
           of other faiths
he left us a light
in the dark
to guide us
into the mystery of
         our own self.

Will he ever rise again
                   I wonder.

Perhaps he has already returned
time and time again
         in deeds of love and compassion.

Perhaps he is already within us.
             A knowing
a heartbeat
pulsing within
         the collective soul.

Birgitta Jonsdottir       Womb of Creation
