Carpe Diem #341, Nidhöggr

Haiku

Earthquakes

snake gnawing world’s roots
seeking freedom to destroy
Earth trembles and shakes

For Carpe Diem Haiku Kai:  Nidhöggr – Adrian Von Zeigler

Nidhöggr

my first choice was a Senryu:

preparing the battle
dragon gnaws at life’s roots
Ragnarök today!

N.B.  Since my youngest son was little he loved mythology and history…of course he went into D&D for a time, we read fantasy together in the evening and old Norse stories…you can say that the kid helped me create a knowledge base I wouldn’t have had…encluding Egyptian dieties…ergo Bastet!  I think I’ll have to pass this piece of music on to him. He’ll love it and I find it better than some of the Epic Metal that he usually listens too when the mood takes him!
