Cuttlefish bone scratched on rock will wash away in the next rain shower.
In the face of winds, torrential downpour, heat, cold – elemental variation – chunks of cliffline collapse.
The ocean eats into rock, eroding, weakening; moving mountains.
Strength, hardiness, resilience are not transient.
The Rune Eihwaz, – Yew Tree – speaks of this.
Like the toughness of Yew tree, showing backbone denotes strength, moving forward boldly, taking decisive action, despite uncertainty.
The Yew tree firmly rooted, reaching up into the sky, represents a link between earth and heavens, mortality and immortality.
Strength, resilience, stability that transcends time. Eihwaz.
