I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
A quiet night,
no sound anywhere.
Clouds in the sky,
played hide and seek,
with the moon.
I fell into a dream
and awoke in a dark forest.
Light filtered through the pines
and the wind blew through the treetops,
onward I went down a winding path,
deep, deep into the dark -
never fearing anything.
I heard the sound of wolves howling
and to me it was such a lovely melody.
Soon I saw a light,
a silvery path from above.
Out into a meadow I came,
where the brightest light shown,
it enveloped me like a cape.
Sparkling rays glittered from the moon above
and I saw shadows at play,
among the dark paths -
that led back into the forest deep.
I saw the sparkling stars,
twinkling so merrily,
high above a hilltop,
there were the silhouettes,
of two wolves .
They stood there,
looking at the moon above,
then they howled
and their sweet music
So mournful, so plaintiff,
as they now were cheek to cheek,
I knew they also expressed –
devotion and love.
It was a magical sound that filled my soul
and I was swept up into a fantasy,
that when I awoke -
I longed to go back again.

HI. A big like from me.
Wolves are very important to the ecological balance of any area. I am referring to areas where they are the major predator and on the top of the food chain. Rivers flow again, forests rejuvenate etc when their is a healthy number of wolves.
All this besides them being enchanted.
Thanks for the poem

Thank you, Ann. Yes, wolves are majestic and mystical.

I am fascinated by wolves. They are ancient beasts and dominate anywhere they exist. Their sounds are mystical.
I like the way you've portrayed this, magical silhouettes in the moonlight; you've captured such a nighttime perfectly, 'clouds played hide and seek with the moon'!
