Cry Wolf, Cry

wolf

The wolf has been part of the natural balance for thousands of years, in less than 100 years man through ignorance and misinformation has almost made wolves disappear forever.

To help protect the wolf, we will need to help protect the wilderness that is left.

For some, wolves live in the imagination as shadows of evil, fuelled by fallacy and fiction. With a better understanding and education and without willful need for bloodshed of most species by us, the wolf might emerge in the light of new understanding.

As winter skies replace the blue
with dark and greying embers,
I will sing a lullaby
though you’re too small,
and won’t remember.

As frost casts fire and freezing touch
and grips you with its fingers,
I will hold you warm and snug
now you’re older,
the memories linger.

As twilight falls still and shadows climb
we listen to creatures howling,
a lone wolf searches just like you,
now you have grown
you yearn to be prowling.

As magnificence, proud against the moon
and gentlemanly he shields her,
don’t fear him now let him be so
let his blood be still.
not petals strewn in slaughter

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

      1. In my home country the wolves are being hunted down now and I just want to cry. Such beautiful creatures and humans are too stupid to understand that it is not they who invade our space, but we who invade theirs!

      1. Anita, I haven’t logged on to Dodo as admin yet so will check it out. We can reblog your posts on there, or if you have an idea for an article we can post. Eventually we want to get an anthology together of fiction/ poetry and then sell with all proceeds going to a designated charity.
