THE WOLF MOON

DORINDA'S WOLF MOON

By Charles Robert Lindholm

The Wolf Moon
high
in the night sky
burning

awakens
an inner
instinctive
yearning
in my soul

Many moons
have come and gone
since you left me
and I moved on

but late at night
in the full moon’s light
old memories haunt me
as I lose the fight
and remember you

and my heart cries out
in a mournful howl

  1. Chuck, this poem speaks to me as my wolf moon is only just now beginning to rise in my night time. Soon, I will howl again, I know and my soul will cry out its mourning and sing with a new light of joy.

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you Gina! I so appreciate your comments! You are so right! They both have powerful mystics and followers and a literary lore also! So wise to point that out!! Now that you remind me I think I have a couple of older pieces I need to go find and dust off! Thanks for that too!

      • You are very welcome then! I love books on wolves, at one point I imagined I was one in a different life. I read a wonderful book called “Never Cry Wolf” by Farley Mowat and see the wolf as such an intelligent and also feeling animal. I hope to read those poems of yours soon Charles. I saw your email this morning , will get to replying it later today, it was a brilliant poem on the wolf. the moon will play havoc with us this January, I am anticipating the Blue Moon on the last day of this month. hope the new year has been good to you so far. Blessings, Gina
