(dedicated to Michael)




I stood upon the bank
of the river wild and free.
And saw the Wolf across the way
Staring intently at me.
I stood quietly hardly breathing
As his golden eyes met mine.
It seemed this meeting was not chance
It was by the Wolf's design.
He stepped away and then appeared
A rose held in his jaws.
I thought he offered it up to me
But could not find the cause.
Did I know this majestic Wolf
In a life I lived before?
And if so, why did he come
Now and not before?
My eyes filled with tears
And my vision blurred just then.
I looked up and saw the Wolf was gone
Never to return again.


This poem and a reply poem by Michael Anderson are on my web site. I cannot reproduce Michael's poem here without his permission, so you might want to go check it out (this is not a shameless bid for hits on my site!) I used a wonderful graphic and used a 'lake class' applet to enhance the look of it.

Your words are woven with magic, I think you put a permanent spell there. The way something can be there, and then not there all of a sudden.

It would strike fear in me looking in a wolf's eyes but it would be beautiful. Just as that time at the zoo the lions looked at me, and then the hubby lion jumped right at me. I was dearly blessed the bars were there, but I can only say I felt sorry for the lion.

Wait, lions and wolves are different? nevermind.

Thank you all for your kind remarks. As a little background on the poem itself, I wrote it after seeing the graphic. It inspired the whole thing!

....Please - Allow me..... Hope you don't mind, deVine..
Each and every one of you should follow that link to poet deVine's site.
This poem is truly awesome!!!

If you love her poetry, you're sure to love Michael's as well - He's a true "Passions Original" poet, and he's exceptional - He's concentrating on his health right now, which is keeping him from us for a bit... Hopefully he's using the time to write some new poetry for us, and will return soon....
Here's a thought...
Michael Anderson

Mesmerising, it was as though I was listening, so intently I actually forgot I was there...I can't think of another way to say how I feel about these linked poems...

I'll push this to the top and hope you will go to read some of Michael's poetry! The man is the best I've read! He has such soul, such heart and such fantastic imagery! If you do nothing else today, as you read this, please go over to the main Passions site and read his words....see the link in Nan's reply! Thank you - you won't be sorry!

WELL!
I swear, you people have me just about giving up on my paltry offerings, and spending a lifetime browsing through your wondeful words!
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL deVine!

THE WOLF'S RESPONSE

I wandered through the wilderness-
Alas, my spirit seemed to be drawn.
Whence I came across the human form-
From which this feeling was spawn.

I stepped forward, quietly allowing-
Myself to be seen amongst the brush.
Eye to eye the world disappeared-
Amidst the river's gentle hush.

I searched the darkness, finding the rose,
An offering of my love.
But as I lay it to her feet, she cried-
'Neath the fading stars above.

Such beauty, I never meant to pain,
But, alas, it seemed so.
As dawn drew near, I too, in tears-
Knew it was time that I must go.

Still I feel the closeness of a moment-
That ended way to soon.
Should we never meet by day in human form,
Look for me the next full moon.

Michael: Thank you for posting the other half of PDV's poem...when I read the two together, side by side and what I just said clicked...the poems spoke to me of 'side by side'...absolutely superb! I just had to read it again...
