~ Non-Norse Poetry by me ~


You Dance on the Cave Wall

You dance on the cave wall,
Stag-God, Ani-Man,
In flickering darkness
Tallow lights blake.

The bison starts breathing
In the red glow
The mastodon´s fleeing
From arrows and bow

You run with the hunters
You run with the deer
Charcoal chases ochre
Forever with spears

With pictures of magic
Ensnared is the prey
While outside the fires
Keep darkness at bay

And drums echo deeply
Pounding with might
The will to survive yet
Another cold night.
