the black wolf

i did not have a thing to say,
i do not know me,
life always such a mystery.

Yesterday some one send me photos of last fall, the colors so extremely colorful. I loose that totally, living in a world all white. Today a storm came through, instantly my dark mood vanished.

i am chirping like a bird. listening to his lovely voice. i blushed . i blushed , my gosh i blushed, how wonderful. that i am still me.

Last week i wrote this poem when at night the owls where talking.

An owl hoots
some 100yards away
all darkness
why do i love the lone black wolf
a wolf that might stand still
and turn it's head towards me, staring,
listening to me

I call back to the owl
i have been hearing owls for several days
so close today
i am inadequate in this forest
where the lone wolf hunts
and the owl answers
i saw the wolf
would i have the courage
to approach
he would trot off, that i know

I am not equipped
my bones creak
my body aches
with an incurable disease
yet i'm healthy

I don't try to approach the owls
their wingbeat silent
there's no telling if they heed me or not

Do i listen to their call?
i want the wolf, i wail
grovelling in deep snow
i scream out for the black wolf
i scramble for his hidden den
my frozen hands
only turn up snow and ice

There's blood
warm bright red, frozen white

and i work slow
and no one knows
as if i am under some sort of spell
and this is not a plea for free love
this is no excuse for cheating
never will i say, you should try it too;
it's fun
or as i like to think
maybe i will write a book;
to be your own
supreme slut

and i do my work meticulously slow
and no one knows
my job has never felt so glorious
just because my hair is sticky with his cum
who is this man i do not know
for three days previous
i felt elated
so listen here
because i do not really understand

and i do my work oh so slow
and no one knows
as a child i loved my papa and my opa
growing older, i loved potential husbands
with no intend of marriage
then i loved my husband
just because it's so
and true love let me tell you
is an amazing thing
blessed the ones who know it
but this loving just for loving...

and i do my work so slow
and no one knows
finally i saw his eyes
just a glimpse when i looked up at him
how can i say
this man i sought
not for anything sincere
the surprise of sweet blue eyes
the sweetest ones i ever saw
the glory of just loving for no other reason than
to be

and the work?
all they know
how well it's done

my intensity, it haunts me, i have a friend she so intense, and she is lovely. no one runs away from her. my husband, my good ol' faithful husband, he is still with me. There is no intensity in snow. snow, it's patient, so very patient here. i don't like the idea that life gives lessons. did you see the snow today? on the sidehill. it had a shining crust of ice, the sun, the sun who's so intense, it made the ice a silver sheet. the patient snow safely underneath.
7 months of snow, why can't i just be me? why do i think i can't be me? i looked a paintings of my paul today, i love him as intensely as i ever did. deeply do i long for him, and so i long for other men, because my inability to give him snow, is what i think made him more silent than a cold spell of 40 below. a south wind blew, yet another man i meet; i want him badly, i long for him so deeply, really i barely know him, not taking time for pleasantries. i love the kind, they reach for me almost instantly, they reach for diamonds that i offer them. I might say, should we not take it a little slower. but really that would make me so uncomfortable, to wait for things i want to happen. so now, only now, this time around i will give him space like air trapped under snow. The snow it does change and when you step upon that silver sheet,
it will collapse quite wonderfully. i will give him space, i will try this time, even if he talks he wants me now, now deeply, fill me totally. i will try to be the winter here and take it slow.
slow slow slow forever all night long, will my faked silence be rewarded.
so i can be the sun.
i never thought i would speak this way
but i can try

labrador tea blossoms

image taken from the web

I wrote this at the writing club last week on a prompt labrador tea.

Clair and i went for dinner today, she doesn't agree with my new lifestyle. Not many do.That's okay, but i still like to bring it out in the open, maybe make it more accepted, maybe..
I always ensure my friends; you don't have to like what i do, or i say; i am not trying to convince you of anything, it's just me. What did i write lately? It's like positive thinking,which works for me, but doesn't really make my life easier. Or remember, i used to say; don't believe me , i lie. Well really all that stuff, we want to teach our kids about critical thinking.

I love my new lifestyle and i do love it when i meet kindred spirits. Claire, i dearly love her, is not one of them. She would kick her husband out, take him to court, strip him clean if he even suggested having a girlfriend on the side. So i don't push the subject with her. Sorry folks here i do, because this just happens to be my safe place to write this kind of stuff.

But Claire and i we do talk relationships, don't we all. So what did she say when i got up to leave?
Or did i say something, as i always feel the need to share. Shit, i love to brag about my boy friends, Yes, i am that kind of girl too. Anyway she said; " well do you have someone now"(meaning an affair)
"Well i did have sex with someone lately"
" Here? Here in Whitehorse"
" Yes Clair"
" A Whitehorse man!?"
Now Clair was all ears, And how i love an eager audience.
" Claire, i can't tell, it's secret, his wife is not to know, bla bla bla"
But her so eager, and i even more, i slipped some vague details:
You might know him
He is wonderfully young
And quite handsome
She asked: "please please please tell me
I am actually proud i was able to keep a secret, not my strongest
" pleeeeese..... in ten years than?"
I promised. I will tell her in ten years.

I don't know if even you guys get this, It's my wonderful life, it's what makes me blossom.
Like the blossom of Labrador Tea. It's not very well known. It is white and i am sure you Yukoners, know it's beauty and it's lovely exotic fragrance.

the end

And i met him again, and now i looked in his eyes, they are the same color as mine.
