Wolf Moon

Wolf Moon

A Poem by Leslie Philibert

a wolf

a snapper,a black bag of lungs
low to the earth,crust of dried leaves.
Eyes full of running,a sharp head
turning to head a night full of moon,howl.
Clear cold full of tired,old stars,call
the weak to trail in the snow,fearing
the warmth at heel,the silent steps;
a ballet of the grey mother.So the night is
long,three notes constant to the dark,
the  lost to be pushed to the white ice;
the dead water,the black spruce waiting,
the carbon hearts still,the dawn lost frozen.

Outstanding poem. Very uniquely written. I really enjoyed the images you used and the atmosphere you created in this. Truly a wonderful poem!

Sometimes I like to just talk about how the poem made me feel more than anything else. This poem reached into the loner inside of me, the one who likes to journey through his own desolation. These places feel safe because rarely does anything else worth loving venture into it. A thought provoking piece, Leslie. It resonated.

Leslie, once again creates a haunting, eerie image...of man's inhumanity to man...metaphorically speaking of course...the darkness of death and the fear of the unknown come forth with vivid detail and horror........boo! As the wolf brays at the moon and we continue to wonder...is anybody safe....or something like that.
I loved it and the questions it left behind...
Great write, Leslie

Wonderfully done. Very nice style.

I would like to hear this as a voice over as the dark wolf was filmed ghosting across the snow. This is one of those voice poems. Lyrical and dark. Beautiful written or spoken menace.

Very nicely done. I really enjoyed your creative poem full of wonderful imagery making for a fantastic whole.
