Cathedral Of Trees

“Cathedral Of Trees.”
By,
Michael P Clarke..

I am the wolf who guards your dreams,
someone in life you once did know.
When your time to sleep is come,
i shall meet you in the cathedral of trees.
Run with me through the lonesome pines, 
your cries of joy fill nights lonely vault.
As you run to me to where we wish to be,
to the Cathedral Of Trees our love’s Boudioir.
The Cathedral Of Trees where we once lay,
where nights of passion did sing to the stars.
My beloved “Star Maiden” our nights so divine,
our love offered up in the Cathedral Of Trees.
Before our Cathedral we now do stand,
i, “Running Wolf”, for you, become a man.
Hand in hand we enter our world of love,
the dream of our desires, the Cathedral Of Trees.
Now lay us down and join in our night,
our time when dream’s desires do flow.
And passion’s memories in glory turn,
within our own Cathedral Of Trees.
Within the tribe an ancient memory stirs,
the guardians of dream come to protect.
The warrior changelings returned from final sleep,
once more returned to the Cathedral Of trees.
Let us join in primal passion once more “Star Maiden,”
our love in memories chasms ever shining.
In passion’s thrall i show adoration at your temple,
As our night spent together in the Cathedral Of Trees.

Hi Jo, thank you for dropping by and the comment. It is much appreciated Jo. I am glad you liked this piece. I wanted to find a place where those passed on and the living could meet and share their love, so the Cathedral Of Trees was born in my mind. The Native American and the wolf content came from my love and interest in both these subjects. I decided to bring everything together in this series of writes. Yours always....Mike.

One of my favourite writes, it just seemed to flow out onto the screen. The Cathedral Of Trees, that place where "Star Maiden" and "Running Wolf" can meet once more in their dreams, to share their love. Your friend always, best wishes....Mike.

Hi Andrea, thank you for dropping by, the comment and the seven. This one was written specifically as the first in a series of writes based on my dreams, my love for wolves and anything Native American. I also loved the thought of a Cathedral Of Trees where two people can share their love. I am glad you liked the piece Andrea. Hugs....Mike. XX
