Before our President elect was official, the current administration reacted to the knowing that they were almost out of power, by enacting measures to take Wolves off the Endangered species list, allowing power plants to operate near national parks, loosen regulations for factory farm waste and make it easier for mountaintop coal-mining operations.
I am agitated by all these efforts, however my greater concern is for the WOLF, as it was nearly eradicated here in the 20th century, remarkably recovered by sincere and persistent efforts, only to be threatened once again by the powers-that-be…

As the Mourning Moon rises, we give thoughts to brother Wolf
whilst a mighty pen has warranted their sudden deaths to engulf

A totem called upon for protection and strength to be taught
is in need of our right actions, not just words – to be fought

From each sacred direction the mighty wolf pack calls
for their survival, as others’ face extinction with their fall

From the Northern lights an airborne shooting hunt ensues
upon Ice-leapers’ lair, so a governors’ ego does not bruise

In the east, paper stained with crude oil and blood
seals Dawn-treaders fate with powers’ arrogant flood

To the south ignorance is bliss, to simply remove
Sun-chaser to another place with hunting skills to prove

In the west, talk is cheap as habitat quickly disappears
so the Night-stalker fades into the shadows of souvenirs

A pack of human voices is needed now to howl
in this eleventh hour, working together – on the prowl.

    I have been a supporter of the Defenders of Wildlife for more years than I can remember. They have done very good work and have saved many. Their voice will be heard again, of that I am sure. I appauld your efforts to get more supporters and giving us the knowledge of what has been done. The more informed people are the more they are able to do. I shall sing the Wolf Song with you.

    stunning artwork! I could not have said what you have written any better, outrage comes easily when nature and the powerful forces within nature are threatened. Great work.

    The Wolf Moon shines so brightly, on a cold and lonely night
    to bring the souls who wander all about and out of sight.
    No more to wander aimlously through the void of dark despair
    To keep them all together and to show that we all do care.

  • and thank you so much for your ‘care’ Larry, so poetically supportive ;)
