Wolf Howls In My Heart

In the 
back
of my mind
is a wolf howl.
Inside 
of my heart
lives 
the wolf.

Mama Zen has ably challenged us, with Words Count With Mama Zen over at Real Toads, to write in 25 words or less, a power image we seem to use repeatedly in our writing. Well, of course, there is only one response, for me, to no one's surprise.

  1. Nope, no surprise at all. Don't think we don't all know that you slip out and howl with your brethren whenever there's a full moon. :-)

  9. The idea of the totem animal lives within our primal cells I think, and both shapes and protects us,if we are able to find it. It feels pretty found here. Like this a lot, Sherry.
