  • Norna's Moths

    (Norna - a play on "norne", the weaver(s) of fate-threads in Norse mythology)

    Norna’s Moths



    in her pain-hut
    Norna ties hope-berries
    to a moth


    someone covered
    the path with mirrors
    refusing you


    on borrowed feet
    light sneaks into a swan
    in a bottle in a lake


    at dusk a mud-ladder
    for your ambitions
    to climb


    we’ll hide in the white room
    as fruit flies, she says
    to her mango self


    by the end of this Yuga
    Norna takes off in her flying cup
    drawn by moths

    Strangely comforting, Johannes. This work has an almost musical rhythm.
