coyote moon

The girls were laughing
outside my door
late last night
a wild party
whooping and yelping
on the prowl for prey
in the yowl moment
answering owl’s question
Coyote moon
the smile askance

Daily Napkin for Thursday, January 14, 2010

In the dark of the new moon
in the wilderness alone
wandering up the hill
The gurgling sound of creek
drew near in the silent seeking heart
as open as eyes wide
calling, “Guide me” in whispered voice
so quiet — the thoughts could barely hear the plea…
Here, now, stop and listen
In this moment, it is perfect
