When a wolf howls in the wilderness
it is a cry for a more fulfilled life
For the wolf it is food and the pack
for me it is community and enlightenment
My inner wolf cries out this morning
for sustenance with kindred spirits
for a more fulfilled life
for a life I only imagine at the edges of my thought.
Inner wolf, bring your pack
round up that dream at the edge
bring it full and glorious
to the campfire of my heart.
We can behold it together
and howl with joy in the moment
Patti Lee Thomas
