"Distant Temples"
Timber - Gray Wolf Silent Watch - Gray Wolves - Wildlife Art Paintings - Gray Wolf in the Snow Art by Persis Clayton Weirs.
"Distant Temples"
Gentle wolf that prays against the moon's silver crystal shroud.
Her sharp profile etched against a crisp November, cloudless, starfilled sky.
Steam bellowing from her heart as she tearfully invokes her prayers back to Zeus,
and all of the Gods she thinks might listen to her mournful cry.
Does she pray,
or does she nostalgically calls to her long ago departed mother who nuzzled and caressed her on long ago forgotten soft and distant winter nights.
Does she mourn the pain that all of her loved ones have endured, or will endure,
so long as the mutant race called man continues it's long journey, which sometimes is, to self destruct.
Is the wolf's gray cludfilled heart just following her path in life, to thus fullfill her role in her universe without question,
or is she fighting to mark a portion of her existence in that path that all of mortal creatures must traverse.
One answer remains in her heart, that even in her infinitesimal role in this maze of puzzles we call life, she, astride the moon, her gentle profile etched against the purple sky, stood majestically alone, with the heavenly horizon at her beck and call.
Author's Notes:
The graphics are courtesy of Wild Wings LLC. I wrote this without any thought other than how all of the mortal creatures on this planet fight and struggle everyday of their existence. I also thought of how sometimes we all feel loneliness, helplessness, loss, nostalgia, and how all of the creatures on this planet find a way to survive against al odds.

Dear Sergio.....This is such a tender write, one of empathy for the creatures that deal with us humans who have ravaged, killed, and ignored them.  There are beautiful visuals and the reader feels that they are within your write.....Nicely penned, Sir...

 Yet another Masterpiece.... Animals feel as well I do believe.

Vivid imagery and thought provoking questions. I think animals feel very much the same as humans...perhaps they don't suffer as much or as long because they are distracted by basic survival. I enjoyed this Sergio!
