First Submission to Saga’s Agon

For the Lady of Sokkvabekk
by E. Blakely

How deep
How clear
How cool
This singing surge of substance without form
Ever flowing through the Realm of Sokkvabekk.
Warded by Saga Odinsdaughter, Frigga’s Handmaiden.

How deep does it flow?
As deep as the Generations that add their Substance to the Stream.

How clear does it flow?
As clear as Truth given form and served in cups kissed by the Light of Day.

How cool does it taste – refreshingly cool or bitter cold?
Only the taster can judge this.
Truth is what it is and each Generation that feeds Sokkvabekk paid the price for inclusion.

Blessed Saga wards this stream – this Flowing Shrine to Lives Lived.
Lives of countess Generations distilled, rendered into Its purest form, but not horded in a well or kept in casks.
The song of our Ancestors given voice, still active and vital and accessible through Saga of Sokkvabekk.
