From Midnight Until Dawn


From midnight until dawn
the darkness belongs to the dead.
They are the footsteps in the hallway
that we dismiss as no one there.
They are the mysterious shadows
that move in the darkest corner of the room.
From midnight until dawn
the darkness belongs to the dead.
They are the invisible eyes
that penetrate us
when we are alone.
They are the nightmare
that still stands before us
when we awaken from a dream.
From midnight until dawn
the darkness belongs to the dead
and our seemingly normal world
is a place we dare not tread.

Taking Up the Runes


Like the rising sun
Fehu ablaze showers wealth
blessings are bestowed.

Divinatory meaning—With Fehu comes the circulation of wealth. Be on the lookout for unexpected blessings and golden opportunities.

Fehu reversed

Blessings spill away
the ground yields not its fruit
dry seasons begin.

Divinatory meaning—Fehu reversed warns of loss and poverty. Be care-ful who you enter into partnerships with. Most times, wealth is lost through dishonest deals. Use wisdom in all business ventures and plant your crops at the proper time. In doing this, you will fortify yourself against possible loss.


Strength and health restored
runic shield for the soul
restoration comes.

Divinatory meaning—Uruz is the rune of strength and health. It heralds a time of restoration, protection and healing.
