Message From the Universe




"I feel I am meant to give you a message," 
she said, walking up to me, smiling.

I had never seen her before.
But my ears perked up.
I am always alert for messages.

"In a dream, I saw you walking on a beach
with a little black puppy.
And there was a wolf somewhere, watching,
in the trees.
Does this make any sense to you?"

"Oh, yes! This is the dream of my life,
and your message gives me hope
that it will come true.
And yes, I know the wolf,
who is watching."

We smile. She walks away.
Now, here I am,
walking on the beach with a little black puppy.
I smile over towards the trees,
where I know a big black wolf
has his eyes on me.

for Grace's prompt at dVerse: Secrets of the Universe, to write about everyday life with a note of wonder, or the mystical. Some of this poem is true - the message part - the ending is my fantasy, LOL. Great prompt, Grace!

  7. Smiles.. the wolf of us lives wild
    and free.. no less truly..
    than the half breed wolf
    of Jack
    London's
    book..
    myth is
    domestication
    is free and kind..
    wild is both
    courage and
    kind.. the wolf..
    is mad when
    domesticated
    and so is
    human
    being..
    one need look
    no further than
    TV.. to see what
    happens.. when
    humans are
    domesticated
    and locked
    up
    behind
    clothes
    of Lies.. both
    metaphor and literal
    as clothes hide free..
    So may the wolf
    inside you sing free..
    always with Kind and
    Courage
    my
    Friend..
    from Alpha
    to Omega..
    the free wolf
    lives with
    purpose
    and meaning
    always now..
    in Love
    and Kind
    of Courage..
    Life is FREE..:)

  9. Having read your poetry I think I do get the message, love how you added the fantasy in the end... and what a lovely picture too.

  10. A terrific poetic joust into the prompt, Sherry. Yes, the wolf is always watching, but he/she is spirit, & can change sexes, & morph to white, depending on where in your karmic adventure you are at that moment. I couldn't help but think of your Pup in the weave of words; nice job.
