Showcase Saturday – Wolf Woman

This is a poem that I wrote for an exercise where you had to imagine yourself as an animal.  I chose a wolf simply because i love wolves!  There’s something about them that really appeals to me.

Wolf Woman

 

Fur, teeth and bones,

Engineered by evolution;

Free from all constraints but hunger.

Together we listen to the sound of the stars.

Nature is our favourite gallery,

We view it through our bones.

I wish that like you

I could howl at the moon.

  1. You are such a strong poet, Jane! Viewing nature through one’s bones, “engineered by evolution” show incredible insight. Me thinks you have the heart of a poet!
