“As I always like to say, good is good forever.” Anthony Bourdain

the wolf moon begins to rise
shattered into pieces
by black branches
like a sky mounted mirror.
branches begin to whisper
tossed by high flying breezes
sounding like windchimes made from seashells,
small animal bones, broken glass –
The wolf moon crouches in the sky
sniffing the smell of the wind.

Wolf Moon
the wolf moon begins to rise
shattered into pieces
by black branches,
like a sky mounted mirror.
branches begin to whisper
tossed by high flying breezes
sounding like windchimes made from seashells,
small animal bones, broken glass –
I lift my face and begin to howl

***The first full moon in January was named by the first American people as the wolf moon – cold, snow caused much hunger among the people and animals.  Wolfs would sit and bay outside the villages on full moon nights.  Thus the name given to the moon in January – Wolf Moon.
