Trolls – A New Look

Trolls are not beautiful in conventional ways.  Traveling up to Norway I saw their many images a-new.  They had tails, they had scales, they had warts and very big feet and fingers .   Their hair was askew.  But they had a look in their eyes of amusement with the world around them, even through a squint.  That’s what I saw in images of trolls.  They could be good or bad, loyal or mendacious.  Sometimes they had kingdoms and sometimes they were loners in the forest.  And people there just loved them in all their manifestations.  So here’s to trolls!  Beauty comes in many forms….and many sizes….and many stories.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
