wolves can wait

wind blowing cold
wild again
low moan background 
music to my morning

tension strums nerves
no whispering
breeze this clamoring 
wail demanding answers
I have no reply

curl up small
in fleecy protection
warm the wolves
can wait another day


back at the bar with the poets

Nice! I like the contrast between the howling fierceness and the cozy fleece. The form really works, too.

This sounds like my area with the cold wild wind. It does seem sometimes like the wind IS waiting for a response. ( I have none for it, except spring come soon!) And yes, the wind CAN wait!

I can hear the wind moaning & wailing ~ I'd rather be inside, curled warm ~

This is great! I will show it to my students... I feel as if they often make the choice to wait until the next day on cold windy mornings.

I'm in a warm place but this took me back to a taste of winter. The way you drew in the wolves worked so well.

I felt like we shared a world here. Great writing.

Poet Laundry said...

"fleecy protection" and "wolves"...made me grin...I agree, stay curled up and warm!

I love your economy of words. Image/feeling/image. I set out to write a poem like this last night, then words took over. Very skilled.

let us hope the wolves never find us.
