Wild Hunt…


Loki’s apparently innocuous parting statement,

“He will even take you into the land of the dead and back out again.”

could be read as instigating an infamous legend.


Ghost Riders in the Sky…

Guignol’s Band…

Riders on the Storm…


Although the spectral charge

across a broiling sky-scape

traditionally has many varied leaders…

Gwynn ap Nudd, Harlequin, and King Arthur to name but a few

…it seems that Odin was the ‘bona-fide’ original.


There is some cosmological basis

for this folkloric staple.


Any departed souls intent on winging their way

through the Sun Door and on into the Star Fields…

would first have to pass beyond the slippery portal of the moon.
