The Wolf


Years ago,

As I sat with friends
Along the banks of a magnificent river
In the untamed wilderness;
(All was silent except for the sound

Of the river)
My eyes grazed the
Opposite bank and
I was awestruck
To see a large black wolf
Come off a game trail.

Stepped out of the woods.
There stopping and locking
Inquisitive eyes
With us.
He was magnificent;
Splendid in his stance.
I could not move,
Could not breathe.
In that moment I felt something so primal
And beautiful inside;
As if connected beyond comprehension of the mind.
This has stayed with me always.
I know in nature
Answers come forward
When you are ready to listen.
