Spirits and Psalms

There is a Flame in the woods

The wolf struggles to see

He must find the fire

He must save the trees

*

He once guarded the Flame

She was wild and free

She sang with the wind

She danced with the trees

Her Flames told of dreams

The wolf could make come true

The Flame was his lover

His heart she consumed

*

One night he awoke

His Flame was gone

The wind whispered in his ear

“She was taken by Kahn”

*

Kahn was a Cancer

From planet Disease

He would slip through the gateway

Bringing the strong, to their knees

*

Wolf’s heart was breaking

As the news sank in

His Flame lost forever

He feared Kahn would win

For  there would be war

Flame must be found

The land was at stake

Kahn would take more ground

Never happy with one flame

Kahn would want more

Using her to burn the forest

Every grove he’d explore

Wolf called up the pack

He called in the herds

He gathered all the troops

Even imploring the birds

We stand united

Together as one source

We can destroy Cancer

Using natural force

The Herbs lead the way

Followed by Spice

Candles were lit

Prayers were said twice

Miracles and blessings

Magical chants

Healers and crystals

Shamans who dance

They followed the smoke

Of Flame’s palms

Cancer was called out

With Spirits and Psalms

Kahn backed up

Having no choice

Unable to beat

This natural force

It was a hard fight

It was a long battle

Kahn finally let go

Turned tail and saddle

In his haste

Kahn dropped Flame

Wolf carefully caught her

Before the woods inflamed

*

Saved by the land

Wolf’s heart again warm

His Flame returned home

Defeated Cancer by their storm

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
