Still behind - Vanaheim - The nine realms

She is behind
yet she keeps walking

she follows him everywhere
with the sun around her neck

she owns the day and the night
                yet she is still behind

her golden tears are falling
                yet she keeps flying

she can see the future
she can see it all
she is powerful
she is resourceful

but she is behind

she is still behind.

You can read (and listen at) the poem at the Artipeeps webpage here.

This poem is part of my online collaboration with Nicky Mortlock´s The Nine Realms project that began on October 2014 and that is inspired by the Norse Sagas (specifically the 9 realms of norse mythology). This project involves near-on 50 Twitter poets, arts, musicians and sculptors, and will run online for 9 months culminating in a poetry, art and music exhibition( and even a Viking boat!) in Hanse House King’s Lynn, Norfolk, UK across the Heritage Open Day weekend, in September 2015.
