Adorations for Njǫrðr (Njordr) Who Carries the Sea

When Njǫrðr treads upon the same earth as Baldr
and is chosen by Skaði for his bright and lovely skin, it is because
he carries the sea with him at his feet.
Invisible as a ghost, and faintly shimmering,
it thrusts the tides against his ankles,
and when Njǫrðr walks, saltwater pools into his footprints.
He brings an ocean where he goes,
and when he leaves, he takes with him
the blood that was washed up on the sand.
