Wolf Prophet

p1010789crop wolfagain

Timber wolf hails with primordial timbre

From the Akashic record of feelings

The leather bound book of howls

Raises its spine

Leafs flapping

As if a wind were present

Involved in the maturation

Of a full Canis lupus

Moment

Passing through existence

 

Twelve harmonically related overtones

Spread through stiff clear whiskers

Coarse shadows shrinking from the mummified wolf pup

Still dreaming in the cauldron of the raven’s cave

Thoughts entangled with the moons mood

 

And the book spoke through the light of its eyes

“You have been arranged to be just so

To be the next wolf prophet

Returned from the land of outcasts

To make the human understand

His animal human link”

 

“You have burned off your wolf’s bane in rusted barrels

All that was past useful to your essence

To that which now can be finally recognized

At the end of a life time

Full mature moments of the inner tradition

That leave the world behind”

 

It is for you to sink deeper into the disassembled road

Downward into the root animal

Mammalian vertebrae creature with instinctual

Digging into the past of root cellar wisdom

Canis cinders of memory to fertilize the present

The blank white page howls into its emptiness

Find your wolf song again

 

Across the barren

No thoughts but your own

Through the steady sounds

Of unconscious dross cleansed by the rain

 

Illuminated sable beast

Of the empty earth house

Your echo is in our cells

In our veins and the giant ferns

Of our thoughts passing through cloud

 

May the rites of our lycanthropy

Heal the fracture of our lost world

Searching for its image and form

 

Take me with you wolf

Into your borderlands of duality

Spells of your prophetic book still breathe in me

Through the dark loam of my animal voice

Through waves of time repeating itself

In the changeling wrinkle of my skin

Quickening beyond this broken down den

Musk and brine smell of death

Dust rising with all life movement

Taking on the shape of things to come

 

Place of the undone

Tight bundled foliage unwinds to the sun

With sonic runes of transfiguration

Arh wooo to know like you do wolf when it is time

To take in the flowers rapture and red bursting berry

When to avoid the farm, ranches and cities

Sprawling suburbs that displace natural vowels

Sacred space of  our frictionless resonant cavity

Free us to rise like the Sidhe from their mounds at dusk

Like earth prayer communion to secrets of the universe

 

Take me wolf as fellow human animal

Half buried in the earth with my soul fire

Gestating in the womb of constellation Lupus

Birth another dreamer of terra firma

With my ribcage sieve gathering the true nature

Of all that was denied or forgotten

Instinctual places moving within torso

 

So sayth the wolf mirror looking inward

Sonorant book of the non preaching body

Sprouting  new song leaves through the muzzle

Into the knowing gait of soft footed perception

Create and be and disintegrate

Into divine beauty with yearning

To see behind the wind and the green

And what makes the oracle speak

This creation song

 

“Wolf dust storm rises from the moon Arh Woo

Travels its course through the milky way too

Reflect star and sunlight on your way Renew

Enter the marrow of the earth wolf Anew

Quicken the bone white of our eyes Pursue

See through the dark the pack rise Soon

Red Wolf Gray Wolf Timber Wolf Arh Woo

Howl our ancestral songs back to the moon

White Wolf spirit of our origins Woo

Keeping the sacred way alive Arh Woo”
