Collage by my friend,
When he died,
somewhere in the mountains,
a grey wolf pointed
her muzzle to the sky
Others joined her,
until the mountainside
with wolf music,
echoing through the dark trees
under the moon.
an invisible black shadow
has been silently
dogging my steps.
Though his song is stilled,
I carry his music
in my heart.
for Sumana's prompt at Midweek Motif: Music. And for Elizabeth Crawford's Creativity Challenge at 1sojournal: Shadow.
This is an ache, registered and echoed from within. I feel it, my friend.ReplyDelete
Some shadows are blessings when they stay past corporeal life....some keep music going. I think this is one such. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
A pure sentiment, captured beautifully. Very peaceful, very strong.ReplyDelete
I like what Elizabeth said. I hear a similar music. I know what you mean.ReplyDelete
How the wolves' howling echoes our feeling so well Sherry.ReplyDelete
Love lost is always remembered and present.ReplyDelete
I have heard of moments like the one carried in your heartReplyDelete
Wolf music... wow.. if only everyone could hear the song of nature the way you do Sherry!ReplyDelete
Ahhh! You make me a little bit weepy – in a very good way.ReplyDelete
the poem is the song of a pure soul..listening to the music of Nature... the word 'shadow' here has a halo of light and love..so uplifting Sherry...ReplyDelete
Oh Sherry, this one tugs at the heart and brings the tears out.. beautifully pennedReplyDelete
Though his song is stilled,ReplyDelete
I carry his music in my heart.
It is the strange connection with one who is committed.
The clarity of his song shines through you so beautifully - and i love the picture.. always there with you xoReplyDelete
The wolf music makes me shiver with fear---and delight!ReplyDelete
Beautiful Sherry. So glad you are thinking of Pup! He does sing for you!ReplyDelete
Some music, once known, stays with you for the rest of one's life!ReplyDelete
