From the mind of Ann Chiappetta

The Year of Revising, Re-Writing WOLF

| Filed under Uncategorized


 

Hello, all. I am going through my older poems and revising them for possible inclusion in a chapbook I am planning to publish. This is the first one I am debuting. Enjoy, and, of course, thoughts welcome.

Alpine paws track

prey accented air

Amber eyes assess the old and weak

lupine aptitude

interprets signals carried upon the wind

Canine strategy overcomes

As jaws

quiets heaving lungs

 

the hunt is merciful

only the fit survive

 

Circular patterns shine in eyes

Imbued with untamed wisdom

of wilderness and voices echoing

from the ridge lines

 

eerie timbre, bittersweet

 

Not so far from human cries

heard in the distance.
