Soar Like an Eagle – more from Grebe Lake in Yellowstone

and – of course – be still like a wolf

Grebe Lake

Happy am I
called Grebe Lake
reflecting passing clouds
and the hills that surround me
home to many creatures
happy am I

Happy am I
the black wolf with the blue face
rests beside me
breathing deeply of my cool stillness
I will be calm and quiet
and show him my best welcome

Happy am I

When this beauty first appeared, he rested in the shade of the tree for quite a while.  Then he left and returned about an hour later, heading to his kill.

      Hello Aussie Emu, I see your other – new? – blog. That’s quite a picture of you changing into the emu! Thank you very much for your comments. The heart wants to communicate and create change but doesn’t know the right way.
