It is our history that bring me here, to this dark place. Our history affords me the courage to stand before You in this dark, heavy place. The weight of the earth above is crushing and You are so immense I can only see to Your knees. I can't convince my eyes to travel higher. … Continue reading It Is All You, Earth-Shaker
Hail, Poseidon, Lord of Horses! I sing Your praise! Hail, Poseidon, whose thundering hooves shake the very earth. From Your seed did the horse spring, From Your virility and Your generosity did this noble creature rush forth, Companion to humankind, and so often, so awfully abused. Shelter them, oh my Lord, for Your embrace is … Continue reading Poseidon Hippios 2015
Love, love, love to pieces this hymn to Odin Poseidon* Psychpompos. This is another beautiful and timely piece of writing. Thanks, Terence! * that's me tongue-in-cheek and poking fun. Once upon a time, a somewhat prominent heathen author decided to suggest that Odin and Poseidon are, in fact, the same god, which was hilarious to … Continue reading Poseidon Psychopompos — a link!
Poseidon Agoraios is being sung to, this day. I absolutely love this piece. (Of course?) I am so very sorry to see this project of Terence's come to an end. Still working on moving the Deipnon out a few days . . .
Poseidon Mousêgetês. Terence suggested I was going to like this one a lot. He was right. Hail, Poseidon, oh so much more than what you think He might be about . . . I especially am touched (challenged? Challenged-confirmed? Something?) by the reminder that, of the Three (the Three have been on my mind a … Continue reading Poseidon Mousêgetês — a link!
Hail, Poseidon Nymphagetes! (No good commentary today. I'm out of words and fighting off some ick. Go, read, adore Poseidon.)
Poseidon Delios is the hymn Terence shares with us today. This brings to mind the work I've done as an assistant with Beth's seidhr practice, and the support Poseidon has provided. We know that He was associated with Delphi in days long, long ago, before it became Apollon's domain, but we still don't think about … Continue reading Poseidon Delios — a link!
Poseidon Labrandeus is the hymn given today. I, heh. Can't keep starting these link-backs with "I especially enjoyed this one . . ." because, you know. Every one and especially, these things, they do not go. Words and meaning things and all that. *sigh* But, this one is timely, and it's beautiful, and it's . … Continue reading Poseidon Labrandeus — a link!
Poseidon Hudsonios is being honored today, and I cannot express how pleased I am to see such a personal, such a modern, such a new epithet gracing the title of this hymn. I've never been to the shores of the Hudson, though I know it is a grand and special river. Rivers are indeed special, … Continue reading Poseidon Hudsonios — a link!
Hail Poseidon Isthmios!, glorious epithet that does not cause my tongue to stumble!
