Cry of the Wolf

Cry of the Wolf

A Story by Hayllie

The night is quiet
No wind, or sounds to be heard
The alpha sits and waits, alone
waiting for a sign, a sound, a clue
to where his mate could be.

The only one in his pack to still be un-mated
like the tides of an ocean. Constantly moving, never able to remain still 
reguardless of anything else in the world. 
Torn between finding the other half of his heart, 
and protecting his pack, being the leader. 

Which should he choose? How long should he wait?
As the night grows colder, the howls from his pack could be heard
They were waiting for his return from his nightly sit
Every night he comes here to the forest clearing
waiting for his mate to come to him
Every night he goes home alone, his wolf inside dying a little more

The fate of his heart weighing heavily on him
but the fate of his pack slowly becoming dark
If he doesn't find a mate soon, he could loose his wolf,
and his pack.

As he stares up at the wolf moon
and lets the same sad cry..
as his howl carries through the air
he travels the road back to the pack house alone again.

I appreciate that you don't anthropomorphize "love" according to humans. This sounds like authentic longing from a canine. Love your storytelling, your gentleness in arriving at your purpose (((HUGS)))

The wolves. They live here in Michigan. You can rarely see them. They are wiser than we realize. I enjoyed the tale dear Hayllie. A alpha wolf is interesting. Demand strength and they take what they need. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing story.
