In a wolf pack there can be only one breeding female and one breeding male. This is a ODE (praise poem) to the mother of the pack.


Totem Fantasy

 

 

I look across the room

 

To my totem wall

Her face stares back

Clarity of features

She is life

Deity proscribe by her nature

Instincts bred into her genes

For a thousand generations

For her

There is only family

They are her strength

Her weakness

Their needs are her needs

Her responsibility

Her joy

She cuddles them

Teaches them

Leads them

Someday a younger and stronger provider

Will challenge her

Replace her

But for now she is mother

She wolf

Alpha Female.

Like a regal queen, yet she fulfills every aspect of her motherly role. Beautiful.

I could feel the force of this poem, a profound pen and beautifully done.

This is a wonderful tribute to a family oriented animal, that can be a friend or a foe. The spirit of the wolf rides in many hearts and many souls, and like them we have the spirit of family. Thank you for sharing Bobbi.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie.

The Alpha Female when I was in a cub pack shouldn't had had a greek letter in front of her specie.
