Crescent Moon

Echoes of a lone wolf’s cry
dance with silvery shadows
beneath the light of the moon.

A distant howl is carried
with the rising of the sun
answering his lonesome calls.
Along the changing horizon
with the eastern winds he runs,

to the dawn of a new day.
Eyes lock as lips meet halfway
exploring with soft, gentle caresses                 
the steps of their opening door.
Two wolves begin once more.

I love the wolves and wolf-howls in this poem, and my antennae also pick up the possibility of romance as two wolves "begin once more". Hmmmmm?????? Hee hee.

Nice River. I like the ambiguity of the wolves, and the feel of freedom as well as seeking--"along the changing horizon/with the easter winds he runs..." wild and beautiful. Glad you linked up tonight.
