Submission to Sigyn’s Agon

“For Sigyn”
by P.S.V.L.

In Her bowl is collected
the bile of a thousand angry Deities
the poison of a thousand fiery serpents
the tears of ten thousand lamenting women

But also
the love of a heart a thousand strong
the devotion of souls ten thousand standing
the sighs of wind and caves a hundred thousand years old

The heaviest of burdens
in hands gentle and dainty
but battle-hardened with care for her task
repeated for millennia

Let us honor Her
and the One She also honors
by Her holding of the bowl
collecting love and sorrows mingled together
