Wolf Eye Cry

Her bold spirit majestic Running wild through the thick Forest floor she prances so Lightly in the evening’s glow   She hails the universal call A deep and bellowing howl Crying out to her brethren Atop the rocky ridge of Heaven   No matter how hard I try I can’t escape the Wolf Eye Cry A single tear sheds for she Is simply elegant beauty   .

Good poem Mandie - yet I wonder if you omitted the second verse completely if it would be complete in itself with that. Just my opinion but for me it takes away from the best in this write. Rocky ridges in Heaven, I'd do a quick re-write and see what you think by omitting that verse. I've been taught the same by some great writers here- and they were always on the money. Enjoyable imagery, blessings, Deni

I gotta think there is an alter-ego thing going on here. The primal needs of the wolf like the unseen primal feelings of the woman. There is the “evening glow” and the “rocky ridge of heaven” which is a little light into the soul. She, (of course we speak only of the wolf), howls with a “universal call”. There is the morality play at work. Morality always hopes that it does not stand alone- as does the soul. I appreciate the poetic vision of this piece. I also do the writer.

Very well done and an enjoyable the rhyming in this one my only suggestion is to break the last two lines out since they to not follow the rhyme of the entire it more subtle feel if you do...thanks for sharing.
