Origin of Fire
by Nina Pommelin
Ukko of the air struck fire,
produced a sudden flash
with three feathers of Kokko,
the eagle of fire,
in the sky above,
behind the enclosure of stars.
In Finnish mythology the eagle is a bird of fire, the king of skies and all other birds. Many tales tell that the first lightning was struck by using the feathers of a mighty eagle, and that lightning started the first fire. In old Finnish language the eagle was more commonly known as “kokko” which nowadays means a large bonfire, typically a specific kind of bonfire that has some ritualistic and even sacred meaning.
