The End Of Days

– Odin and Fenrir

wide lick the waves at seasons’ wailing end
worlds squirm & wither beneath a weakening moon
sulfurous teeth singe stars & feeble grass
the days grow dark, doomed; wolfish grins.

Fenrir feasts, a fiery dusk
he tears and tastes the tales of Gods;
a brother once bound, now bounds free
rivers roam, Ragnarök has come.

Tony Maude over at dVerse invites us to use Accentual Alliteration for today’s Form for All. This is my attempt or rather, draft – I have no idea if I did it right… so hard (even harder at 4am), but such fun! 😀 Of course I had to tackle Norse Mythology… may the Gods forgive my feeble attempt. 😉

  1. When it comes to mythological gods and combining it with poetry.
    You have such a brilliant gift and imagination.

    Your world of imagery takes us back to the theory of myth gods and goddess. 🙂

    Excellent! poem. 🙂

    I am back! and ready to blog again. Say, I just posted my new poem after such a long while now. Starting today and Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays. I will be posting a lot of more poems that I have been working on since my absence. 🙂 I’ve been working secretly at some amazing poetry writings. 🙂 Hope to see you on my blog today. 🙂

  2. It seems to me that you have the perfect subject for the form – and I can definitely feel the Bang, Bang, Bang – Crash in each line; three alliterated beats followed by one not alliterated. As Bjorn has said, you can add more sullables between the allits, which can give this form a more free verse feel to it.

    Nice work, Miriam.
