Sister Cat

 

I carried wolf spirits

deep within me

for many years.

They taught me

the savage knowledge

of defending the pack.

 

They are always with me.

 

But, Sister, you came

so softly

a feral shadow in the night

rubbing against the

sharp edges of my life.

You were here before I knew it.

 

Wild and savage

with a depth of spirit

and fullness of heart

I stood in awe

of your power

and was humbled by your trust.

 

You were Piís Tiger

in my shipwrecked soul

when I was cast adrift

giving me

the lesson of patience

with only a small loss of blood.

 

You are my greatest teacher.
