The End of the Hunt
and post notes and photos about your poem like Alison Hodges.
From a set of poems about wolves inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estes "Women Who Run With the Wolves
She came upon the forest
just as darkness begins to traverse the canopy of leaves.
Tired, worn, lacking the vigor of the morning.
And judges her condition as to its soundness.
Her nose is clogged
with the scent of the hunt.
Her ears plugged
With the sounds of the day.
She seeks safety among the tree roots,
susceptible to danger as she settles to refresh.
The strong, overpowering deadliness of her morning
fades as the vigor of the daily hunt runs its course,
leaving her vulnerable and exposed.
