She wolf
Alpha being
No need for others approval
She is
Who she is
No need for affirmations
No need for the right to be
 
She leads the hunt
Walks through the gate first
Fiercely independent
A seer for all
She knows herself fully
Inside and out
Limitations and fears
There are few
 
She licks her own wounds
As they bleed on the ground
 
Feeds herself first and takes care of her needs
The balancing act
Of those at her tit
She’s the mother and lover
Aloof when it suits her
Dismissing the needs of a victim in tow
Indifferent when it pleases her so
 
She knows when she’s needed
For survival of all
And what really matters
To strengthen them all
 
Contained in self wisdom
Pride in her howl
The voice of authority
Prepared to endow
Rarely speaks out
But stands strong in herself
 
She sees through the mask
Of endulgence and lies
Ready to fight for the needs of her clan
For no shadow escapes
from those predator eyes
she listens she waits
awakened to life
 
Wild in her nature
she is the lone wolf,
the female,
the wild the primal
historic
Quietly standing
aside of it all
yet knowing the landscape
sure-footed and tall
Awaiting the moment
That time will tell
Integral and patient
Aligning her self
With nature

With love
With the right to be free!

About Caroline Carey

Caroline, born in 1960, grew up with a love for the wild, for nature, for animals and to dance. She wrote poetry and stories, created theater and explored the art of ritual of which she always held a fascination for. Not being of the academic type and being passionate about mystery, immagination and myth, she chose to spend her time alone with her many animals and the passion she had for ecstatic dance whether indoors or in nature. Her imagination was as wild as her life-style and by adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to Spirit and the spirit guides she became strongly connected to. Mothering her six, (now adult) children, Caroline has learnt the art of play, creativity, story telling and the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood bestows upon us.

    Beautiful poem, from the heart of She wolf…thank you Caroline. I feel strongly drawn to wolves since my young age…deep connection I cannot explain! I long to meet Helene Grimaud and be with her as she is with them.. They spellbind me and I can watch them in silence as if they are part of me and me part of them. As if we know each other’s deeper selves… I cannot explain really… When I read the poem, I could tune in to the wolve she being, just being, trully and fully self… amazing. Thank you… I’d love to be with wolves right now…

    • Thank you Patrice, we clearly have very similar affinities with the wild, yes I too have a deep love and am mesmerised by the intelligence and grace of the wolf
      Tuning in we are 🙂
