Sent Back Once More

Back fron the gates of shades I come
wolves howling at my heels
I do not hurry, flee or run
they send me back
my day not done
*
The wolf is my companion
my guide and my protector
my journey yet unfinished
my work not wholly done.

Wolf detail from painting by Yasmin Flint.

  6. There is something about wolves that touches my heart. Don't know quiet well why, but I feel safe at their thought. Beautiful prose and thoughts. I hope you are doing well and rain is on the horizon.

  14. Dear Arija thank you so much to take the time and tell me about that problem with answering thisandthat.I have a look into it. It is so annoying for people who would like to write, take the time and it does not go through; sigh...
    I think the wolf is beautiful and the poetry to go with it as well. Wolfes have always been maligned. Rotkaeppchen is a good example.

  18. Arija you are right! The horrible music comes with my slide, I don't know how to get rid of it! The video is ok. but the slide is wrong.

  19. What a great animal this wolf is.
    About the music, Arija: I fixed it by simply putting something else on the slide. Now you can hear the French chanson again.
