Poetry Contest

Write about the origin of origin connected to this music

This competition is about origin.
Origin beyond origin, much more early than history, when all began
When we began as humans.

The group Heilung is a group of artists who each have their own quality.
Needless to say they are highly  creative, the members are from germany, Danmark and Norway. For me Maria Franz, the lead singer is a goddess.
Of what? Magic, ancient bone structures, chants, whispers, cries of pre historical landscapes....
They sing in all kinds of ancient languages, from latin to old scandinavian . I've never found a full translation for Heilung except for the songs. As I understand, they use English (Krigsgaldr), German (Schlamschlacht), Old English (Fylgija Ear, Futhorck), Old Norse (Alfadhirhaiti), and Proto-Germanic speech (In Maidjan). I could be mistaken but I believe Hakkerskaldyr is Maori, However its all about the old inscriptions from runes, hyroglyphs, poems, etc.....

I do not expect you to listen to the whole track, perhaps some of it or read the article at least. The music is not for all ears, it can be quite disturbing though if you have a level of magic within, you will find your ears

Find the article

"how Denmarks Heilung  are creating amplified history"

The lyrics to the Opening Ceremony

Remember, that we all are brothers
All people, beasts, trees and stone and wind
We all descend from the one great being
That was always there
Before people lived and named it
Before the first seed sprouted

and finaly the music

With all this said, I wish you all luck in creating a piece
poem, text etc, any length or style, be respectful, one entry per poet, one month

ENJOY

Melia

EQUINOX

When her grandfather  
was chief elder,  
and blessed his granddaughter,  
held high in offering,  
spirit voices  
of the seven caves      
could still be heard  
echoing  
through the canyon.  
 
Beyond desert yucca stalks,  
from pine pitch torches,  
moon besets  
Scorpio's firebrands  
o'er the priestess,  
who's onyx eyes blaze,  
of what she will consume  
and may destroy,  
Yellow Woman & Black Panther.  
   
Elder sibling to the Jaguar,  
only she remains  
from the heresy of its wisdom  
on this night of the equinox,  
when waters of Pueblo Mesa  
spring forth, to flow  
and part the cliffs,  
to reclaim, to scatter  
rattlers from their mounds.  
   
With memories intact,  
of those now gone,  
on ghost winds of sky riders  
generations before,  
and the updrafts that carry  
kachina prayers & offerings  
on their breath  
amid sweet cedar smoke  
of mesquite sap
and rendered fat.  
   
Her bronze hands filled
with indigo berries of woodbine,  
touching the four corners,  
the green pain of flint & flesh,  
of Red Clay Daughter
and Black Earth Mother,  
invoking peyote spells
among the ruins  
and the silent Joshua.

Echoes of Valhalla

Sounds the horns of ancient tune
Echoes through the halls
Of the Great Valhalla

Warriors at the great hall
gathered from battle grounds
among white-capped mountains

stand together in glory
shining swords and countenances
telling tales of valours

the Valkyries
in flurries of wings
flew again, leading them to Odin

the god in benevolent splendor
listening to tales of them
in the dirges of dying

‘among our brothers
In the arms of our fathers
with pride we gather’

‘we stand with our sisters
guarding our mothers
from rebels of heritage’

‘long shall the hall
of Valhalla
house the souls of warriors’

‘for stand us proud
alive through tales
of bards of yore’

‘stand us here
in the Halls of the Slain
memories sang in sweet refrain’

‘we are of the fallen
led here by Valkyries
to prepare for Ragnarok’

‘in the fields of Vígríðr;
clashes of swords
Man and immortals shall ring’

‘before then shall we
dine together
in the Hall of Valhalla’

For now the gate is closed
where the wolf hangs
and the eagle hovers on.

Camouflage

I sleep with one eye open  
head rotated the movement on the frozen tundra  
friend or foe a rodent to eswage the hunger
silence to the grey and drab  
eyes so keen like lasers  pierce and stab  
 
The wolves they chant as the days comence
they feel the religon of its grace
the pack its order its worlds so fierce
wild the nurcher of its family face
bare the teeth growl so statuesque
 
Cubs that romp and hone there skills
breed the smell of blood and kill
the backyard of the forest floor
yelp and feint to grace the hunt  
when it is formed
 
Graze the reindeer so discreet
ghosts of movements that dance slow beat
the frozen startle crisp and neat
the ballet as like one they turn and flee
the preditor is so hungry that pangs persist
 
The rut the challenge to the stag
the antlers clash and flesh is gouged
the pretenders season has emerged
they writhe and snort the bout is soon cut short
the victors bellow a first prize at any sport
 
The bear it prowls and lumber slow
its power to kill with just one blow
game and fish it meal the chosen course
but to bear the sting of the bee to gorge
like humans a honeyed sweet desert is sought
 
Dormant lies the animal in us  
"lord of the flies" that truth disguised
how far removed the cannibal that you despise
the beginning or the ultimate decent from paradise
 survival mode would you go down that Darwin road

Thank you for your beautiful entry Brother Slip

I wanted to include a link, in this nature park in Norway, wolves are being partly socialised and one can be very close to them.. This clip shows that nature is strongest, I thought it was a bit funny too , I had to laugh when one wolf tries to shut up the howling person, asif he said "nono youre off key!"
Enjoy the magic!!!

note, the person in the brown jacket is the caretaker of the wolves
(they are saying to the people that they just have to remain and react calm)
