Wolf Within


Wolf Within 

it was a dream?
encompassed by evergreens,
pine cones scratching up my barefeet,
twigs, rocks cutting at my toes –
run faster from the man!
man in the sky,
unraveling native tongue,
i did not know –
or did I?

chants and haunts cocooned,
branches choked, grabbed,
narled up my cheeks –
run faster!
my back heated;
IT was close behind,
nipping at my heels,
Man in the sky, spoke
wisdom in chants; foreign tongue –
of Water, Earth, and Sky

paws jumped my shoulders,
claws ripped my flesh!
I wrestled
conjoined in somersaults,
pulling hairs, tearing fur,
teeth and fangs dug DEEP

the voice of the SKY,
my Native Tongue –
linguistically uncoiled,
The wolf is you.
locking eyes –
nose to nose
mirrored self-portrait
I descended

gulped down by my own hand,
self-induced devouring –
the SKY opened wide
gleaming a white wolf;
as i cradled my new found Peace

Inspired by a dream I had in my twenty’s that still speaks me today when my memory of it is triggered. I share some of it here Dreams. I love wolves by the way … and owls, crows, CATS, panthers … and many, many more creatures that I shall not list.
