Wolf Spirit

Wolf Spirit,
you came to me in dreams,
with three white sisters.
They held back,
while you came forward,
nudged your nose against my knee,
in trust, in respect,
as my wolf-pup used to do.

I offered you a bowl of milk,
which you accepted,
dipping your head to drink,
and then you left,
back into the greenwoods.

I woke, knowing you will
travel with me now, 
forever, in my heart,
along with my black wolf,
who perhaps sent you
to tell of his transformation
into spirit,
perhaps to say goodbye.


for Hannahs prompt at Real Toads: Totem Animals

  4. Oh yes, Sherry, that wolf spirit will help you through grief and loneliness for Pup. At least we wish, just thinking of it does one good.

  6. This seems like the perfect spirit animal for the dream-writer I see in you each time I read your poetry. Even though he has transformed into spirit wind, he stays with you. Thanks for sharing!
