King of Stones, Wolf

©2023 michael raven

wolf-ridden and gone rogue
i lope under a midnight sun
shaking off tethers and laces
stopping to praise sister moon
at each of the sacred stones
calling back before tradition to
ways when the world was young

The above uses the card named in the title from The Wild Wood Tarot as a prompt. The card depicts a grey wolf with his head thrown back, howling at the moon; behind him is a snow-laden tree and fields covered in snow. It is nighttime, but a warm glow in the distance suggests the sun is just over the horizon.
