Like a Whisper

LIKE A WHISPER

Wolves cross the road
and like a whisper
melt away
into thin air.

Black shadow
appears
like a thought
and a hope
and is gone.

    This is a lovely poem Monica and one that follows on from your last posting but you know these wolves will thrive once more; it’s just the bureaucrat nonsense that is a constant danger to them… When a ruling is made to protect a species it should never be changed, that to me is just offensive and indeed unacceptable…

    Be well now Monica and think positive about the love you have for these fine wolves…

    Wow, Monica – this gave me goosebumps! Your excellent poem evokes the mystery and elusiveness of these beautiful creatures. The print is considerable, isn’t it? I didn’t imagine that they were that big.

  6. Monica says:

    Thank you, Bluebee! I do love your gravatar. They are big — when you see the prints, you go, whoa, this is no coyote! When you see a wolf from the side, you think, what is that, a moose, a colt, oh my God, it’s a wolf! I have also taken pictures of the scat, because that is enormous, too. I probably won’t post that, though. Best to you.

    very heartfelt and lovely poem, Monica, and what a magnificent photo. Gives you an insight into how big the wonderful animal is, and ‘Black shadow’ stirs the mind and the heart… xPenx

    Ethereal. Both the creatures and the words. Nice one, Monica.

  9. Monica says:

    Very kind, you two.

      Like Andro, I’m looking forward to your next posting… and thank you so much or dropping by Monica, always a pleasure to have your response to my scribblings… Sometimes I sit and look at an empty Live Writer page and wonder if I’ll ever ‘dry up’… Scary thought, but for now my mind just buzzes with ideas, it’s the putting them in some semblance of order that the problem!! 😉
      Hope you and yours have a wonderful week-end… xPenx

      • Monica says:

        Pen, I can’t imagine your creative expression ever drying up! It flows and delights! Thanks for coming by. I so enjoy our interchange.

    Hello Monica.
    What a beautiful Photograph of the Wolf. To me, it looks like a pregnant female. But I could be wrong ! More pictures like that please.

    “Like the Wolf”… I am gone !!!
