Alpha Male

The last wolf stands

with burning gaze,

amber eyes

full of moon glow.

His face tilts to the wind,

wise and true,

body and soul.

Waiting for the sunrise,

his solitude well chosen.

This born warrior

from a lost tribe-

this storm from the underworld,

searching for higher climbs.

Holding the hilltop

in silent vigil.

Looks down on hollow valleys

with roaming mists.

Greets the morning air

with mellow tones,

echoing age and loneliness

I have read this many times Sian, and you always have a way of constructing different ideas into your poems.

I also agree with what TC says... very mystical feel to it ; )

The key here in surely the "last" wolf?
There is an element of the passing of one thing into another, a changeling perhaps. Renewal I think, in clever allegorical prose. I might be wrong but this is different stuff Sian, and much deeper and thoughtful. I like your new work. Graham.

I've always felt you have a lot of the Wolf spirit energy about you, as you know.
Beautifully written. x

A great poem, Sian. I love North American mythology, with its spiritual connection to all living things, especially animals. Perhaps you do too. Mind you, I like MYTHOLOGY period, but especially that of the First Peoples of N.A.

I own a picture/poster of a lone wolf which this poem bears a lot of resemblance to. I was instantly drawn to the image while reading it.

I love this, it has a mystical feel to it, like an echo from a magical age.
