Seasons of the Wolf – Winter Notecard



Seasons of the Wolf – Winter


The Northern Spirits have brought the snows

and the long cold

and the waiting.

Hunger may live in us up to two weeks

as we try and try again

to find the prey which will offer itself up to become

Wolf flesh.


Hunger grows in us for more than food, as well.

Soon we, Alpha male and female of this Clan,

will feel the pull to join,

the warmth of fur, the play, the mating, the joy.


The promise of the future

an instinct in our blood,

and the hope of the Wild burns in us like fire,

through the long, cold nights of Winter.
