A Sacred Circle



A calm breeze filled the summer air; The smells of blossoms were soothing beyond compare!

The trees were stretching themselves in joy; The shining Sun their leaves would soon employ.

A hallowed circle was lovingly erected; By runes carved into the earth it was protected!

Prominently displayed was the sacred As rune; Today I hoped to speak to Odin and Thor soon.



I turned in each direction during the Hammer Rite; The circle was hallowed for the ceremony tonight.

Nervously talking, I welcomed the Asagods to the blót; Their presence was a joy, for I feared them not.

Asking for holy gifts, I offered them one of worth;  Beer, not blood, was poured forth onto the earth .

Receiving my offering, I raised my cup; They blessed it with strength and knowledge as I held it up.



Drinking their gift, I then packed everything away; I wished them thanks for visiting me today.

Though our time tonight was very short, I am happy that their love of kin I can support.

The Old Gods call us to meet them half-way; Won't you give it a try, this sun-kissed day?
A blót is a Asatru ritual to the Gods in order to receive their love, kinship, blessings or other things. This is a short poem depicting one that I did recently.

Thank you!

Talking to the Gods can be a bit unnerving, but it's quite amazing to be able to.

Oh, this is lovely writing! The feelings and the imagery it evokes is amazing.
I must admit, most of my interactions with the gods happens through my dreams, and occasionally when I meditate through the astral plane; but this sounds like a ritual I would like to try some day.

Hehe thank you very much! =) I figured being direct with them would be quite good, even if I was a bit nervous.

You're welcome! :D I'm sure they appreciate directness. Or at least they've never complained to me about it. :XD:
