The Elfin Runes
The elfin runes were characters drawn to represent shapes in nature – the curl of a wave, the silhouette of a fish in deep water, the body of a serpent threading between two stones. To the elves these characters have special significance, for they understand them – their shapes and sounds – to be the very language of creation. In them, there is the most basic magic of forms and definitions. But also in them is the deeper understanding of spirit. For while the runes describe shapes and sounds, they also hold deeper meaning and are the key to understanding both the mysteries of the self and of the boundless universe. So here, in these motes and marks, in these slashes on the page, in rock, or earth, is the language of stars and moons, of wind and water, of wyrd and dreams.
