Ragnarok/Twilight of the Gods



Ragnarok/Twilight of the Gods, acrylic on canvas, 51 x 41 cm.  Colleen Kerr 2015

Two ravens (Odin’s eyes and ears).

One perished in humanity’s maelstrom

the other, now broken and blind.

Odin’s Raven

clutches the Rhinegold.

She cannot tell him

the hills, they are moving, alive – no,  they are afire, like Brunhilde’s prison.

The Norn predicted. The Norn spun our illusions, wove our fates

Weft our deeds. Warp our undeeds

Their weaving says:

“The mighty will fall

The gods will die

Valhalla will empty

of warriors, they and their battlefield deeds

like the blood they shed

will soak

into the earth

the burning earth.”

And Odin’s Raven

clutches the Rhinegold.

The Rhinemaidens enslaved long ago,

their river poisoned and damned.

And Odin’s Raven

clutches the Rhinegold.

The salmon, containing countless  pearls, the salmon, the Rhinegold,

the Grail that holds the holiest of holies.

life itself.
