    excerpt from La Loba Speaks for Wolf


    I am all ears and mouth,

    all wanting and bonding:
    the rocks -- an abacus, slopes – a playground,

    the pack bounding there – my playmates.

    Through scrub, rockfall and snowstorm,

    instinct nurtures.

    Wolf comes about me through the wind,

    tongues of grass blades, pull of forest,

    path of moonlight, rush of blood,

    the shiver of dust in sun’s bounty,

    the sound of cherish, the taste of fear.
