Night of the Mournful Wolf

as fog comes creeping a wind screams through the graveyard. . . the night frightened white leaves on ground scatter around unremembered graves. . . the shivering trees high above the mist and cemetery tombstones. . . moon hides its fullness digging at one grave the coffin in fresh deep ground. . . a large grey creature yellow eyes of owls watch from an oak’s gnarled limbs. . . the wolf strangely howls night turns into dawn As the cold fog rolls away. . . A secret revealed atop his wife’s grave lies a weeping naked man. . . his nails caked with dirt For the Spooky 'Ku Contest of : Tracie ~*~ Indigo Dreamweaver

    Great misdirection in the storyline Andrea - strong metaphors too - a very sensual lamentation - J.A.B. %

    Hi Andrea yep now and again we all have to do a really silly one just to keep our minds grounded on the things in life we can do nothing about, yep I have absolutely no sense of smell, I have never smelt a flower in full bloom or the perfume my wife or any other woman wears, absolutely nothing, in the same sense some people are born blind or get used to it and learn to live without it, hope you and Joe are ok...David....PS. I like the idea of you thinking I am a Master Bard ha ha ha .
