Call of the Wild

***
Here in the shadow
Of despair, loneliness
Hangs in the air like
A wet coat, the silence
Like the weight of pebbles
Beneath which which one sags,
Broken at the knees.

Each step towards
The distant light is a prayer
Of repenting, for forgetting
What love in the wild
Feels like.

Step by step, walk after walk
We are making this world
Whole again, heeding the
Inner call to become
Wild and free again.

  1. “the distant light is a prayer.”….simply lovely! There is a message here that needs to be heard, and I hope we all listen to the call of the wild, for the wild seem to be wiser than us humans. I love this A J!!
