Wolves - Poem by Ayisha Blevins

I see the wolves running on the path through the dark moonless night.
Their silver fur blowing in the wind.
I feel their fur as they walk by me at sunset.
I hear them howling to each other or warning of danger.
I see their footprints in the snow.
So clearly against the ground.
I hear the sound of ice breaking as they break it to satisfy their thirst.
A tail held aloft is dominance, alphas do this.
A tail held down with a slight curve is relaxed or at ease.
And a tail held between the legs is submission.
Omegas are the lowest of the pack.
For they are picked on and bullied by all the other members.
Some go off on their own or are exiled.
Forced to wander the wild in search of food, or a mate.
Lots of pups born in the spring.
Taken care of by all members of the pack.
I see the wolves running on the path through the dark moonless night.
