Legend of Asgard (tanka string)*

clouds gather in dark~

giving form to fear as rain~

trees hold ground knowing~

lightning announces entrance~

games Immortals play this night


rides obscurity~

chariot thunders in skies~

protecting mankind~

Mjollnir held true in Thor’s hand~

poised to battle tyranny


*Note: The storm videoclip was filmed from the upper deck of my home. The storm only grew in intensity as time moved on. Being this high on the mountain at times one has the feeling of being closer to God/Gods :). The song is Riders on the Storm by the Doors, however I chose the instrumental instead of the original. Always πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.

Thor is mostly associated with Norse methodology more so than Germanic, if you wish to learn more about Thor in all methodology I have provided a link
