Red Reindeer Goddess Rises
When the darkness of the aging year deepens,
when the shadows sing and the bare tree branches
snip and snap their bony fingers under the lowering sky....
that is when the Red Reindeer Goddess Rises.
She rises to meet the gathering Northern darkness,
the Northern cold and frost and wailing wind.
She rises without concern or fear of how far
she must travel or what obstacles she might meet.
She rises, and the journey begins until
she reaches her distant destination.
There is nothing else.
