Headline Poem 7/1/14 -- three wolves of freedom

Today is Canada Day! 

three wolves of freedom

together,
blue borders spread 
to red

separated 
to reunite 
empty and unfed

beaten and hollow,
blinded, 
they stood by 
     each other 

stopping, slightly,
to eat,
but never fill up 

moving always,
inspired by   
hungry   eyes

eventually, space 
created peace,
     guided by green jade 
     and wondering,
     restless minds 

calmed 
by rain,
the (sharp) teeth of 
beautiful beasts 
accepted lips 
slanted upward;
     
     an accident

to be happy, 
as rain turns
to snow,

it is the simple things 
they know
