The Wolf

Standard

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.

He
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
Honest
Unexpected
Answers come forward
When you are ready to listen.

Velvet

Standard

I kneel to

Feel this;

 Raw earth.

My tears

Of gratitude fall 

For the wilderness has

At no time failed to

Save

Me

From myself.

In her stone and softness,

Her life and decay.

Always replenishing.

Forever

Sharing

All that she has to give.

I have lived many lives in the wilderness.
On the velvet forest floor
I lie.

My eyes lift to the heavens

As she soothes my soul

And i know this;

All

Is now as it ever has been and will be;

As it should be.

The Great Wilderness

Standard

I reopened the gate

And went out into

The

Great

Wilderness.

There I returned to the

Life

I new

As a child

And became

The

Peace

I have always carried.

For the birds welcomed me.

The wind embraced me.

The trees receivedĀ me with a timeless remembering.

The dirt infused my senses with vivification.

The sky opened up in my heart

And the sun became a friend to my soul again.

I recalled this is where I belong.

There,

In

The

Great

Wilderness,

I did live

Once

More.
