Lone Wolf

Lone Wolf” Written by John Moses Freeman A lone wolf far from the pack of his concern, entertains by flute in hopes of an appearance from Great White Father. Many moon have passed and no sacred white buffalo have been seen or heard of by himself or any of the other members of the tribe. It is always a bad omen to go for so many moons without a sacred appearance of a single white buffalo. Separating himself from the rest of the tribe eliminates the possibility of any bad medicine of unsacred mistakes that might have possibly been made by any of the other braves. Fasting for days Lone Wolf rescinds the weaker part of his soul, giving over to the spirit world. That he might be worthy of the divine appearing presence of the Great White Father. Should the Great White Father decided to divinely grant this mortal His holy appearance from inside the spirit world. Lone Wolf's proof of worthiness is his abstaining from food until his unworthy fleshly senses have rescinded; into the lower depths of darkness of the soul and obliged Lone Wolf’s sacred sense, giving over to the authority of the spirit of his stronger essence. The nature of the trees of the woods, the air, the water, the sun of day and the moon of night are the image of the lesser senses that must be respected, for they are given to the lesser man’s needs in the lesser world as shelter and food. But today Lone Wolf plays his flute for the purpose of entertaining a presence of the Great White Father of mother earth. He will fast and play until his inner essence becomes one with the essence of creation! By this divinely granted appearance he will receive spiritual council and rectify his tribe with good medicine and receive new direction correcting the bad omen. The white buffalo will appear in the herd again! For and in Honor of Constance La France ~ A Rambling Poet And Contest: Tell HIS Story

    John, I have a statue of the white buffalo and am very familiar with this Native American belief. I like the way Lone Wolf fasts to achieve a more spiritual state. I've tried this myself at times. It's also cool that he had the insight to separate from his tribe which has been laden down with "bad medicine of unsacred mistakes." I hope Lone Wolf rises to the top of the herd in this contest. Awesome narrative! Love and blessings, Carolyn

    john, I quite like how you decided to do this as a narrative. Your story is very focused and very descriptive to tell us the importance and reason for fasting for this character you have named Lone Wolf! By the way, I dated an Indian in college named John Lone Wolf! no joke (he was very different to me and he called me a "trivial person" so it was not meant to be, and lucky for me. heehee)
