Shivering River…

*

The traditional number of runes stands at twenty-four.

A colt has twenty-four milk teeth.

Sleipnir is a colt.

*

The runes are usually depicted in tablet form

as three rows of eight runes apiece.

*

The facts here tend to support the poetic thesis.

*

There is, though, an important distinction to be made.

‘Heaven’ is not here viewed as a navigable place,

which is how we might have been led to regard it but, rather, as a space,

that is, a ‘head-space’ or a state of consciousness.

*

The runes give access to this consciousness

through the process known as ‘divination’.

*

So, keys, yes but not on a ring or chain,

and ‘heaven’ is not somewhere we are destined

to arrive at or not but, rather,

a state mind, or realm, which can be accessed by all.
