A Wolf in The Forest

Im just in the process of looking back at the things I have done, now I have more time and am in the process of trying to keep my brain creative while my body is deciding what to do with itself. This is what I call one of my word paintings, published in Wolf Warriors in the US in 2014. There is some lovely wolf artwork in the anthology. Jonathon W Thurston was the collator rat, and I am happy to be included.

A Wolf in the Forest

He moves

between the trees

Sleek

as a shadow

Soft

as a breeze

His eyes

Looking

far ahead

His ears

Listening

all around

His senses

Tuned to listen

For the cracking twig

The smell of death

That warns him

Man is on the hunt

Again

Book details
Wolves have terrified and mystified us, their howls echoing through the words of our fairy tales, the texts of our stories, and the deepest crevices of our imaginations. Wolf Warriors presents a diverse collection of artwork, poetry, essays, and short stories, featuring bestselling author David Clement-Davies and award-winning artist Lauren Strohacker. This anthology captures the various faces of the wolf: from the fantastic to the horrific, from the snow-capped mountain peaks to the moonlit lake in the trees. The howls of these warriors will make you smile, make you cry, and, most of all, make you want to raise your own howl to join the chorus. Featuring best-selling author David Clement-Davies and award-winning artist Lauren Strohacker. Also including: Catherynne Valente, Adrian Lilly, Dominique Goodall, John Noland, Linda Palmer, Pierluigi Pavano, Shannon Barnsley, and more! ….(and dont forget me, Eunice C English!)
