Werewolf Dreams – A Sonett

©RedCat

The full moon rises clear and night-day bright
Distracting him from wife and child
Shining beacon to the shapeshifter’s sight
A clarion call to break free and run wild

Follow the call of the silvery moon
Run swiftly through the woods on soft paws
Howl and sing loudly to her dancing tune
Hold warm blood and hard bones in his jaws

Feel the cool night wind caressing his back
Drink his fill in the sweet burbling stream
Tumble and play with his werewolf pack
Freedom a chained human can’t even dream

Such is the power when you feel other
Accept yourself, says our wise witch mother

This poem is dedicated to my oldest child. Who asked me today as I took pictures of the moon if I ever wrote about the moon and werewolves. I told him I’ve written plenty about the full moon and some pieces about wolves. But so far nothing about werewolves.

Mind still on yesterday’s turning prompt. I ended up with another Sonnet.

Shared to earthweal open link weekend #58 and to Writers’ Pantry #59: Love and Loss.

  1. A magical sonnet to dedicate to your son, Helene! I love the image of the full moon rising ‘clear and night-day bright… A clarion call to break free and run wild’, just the way it should be, and the way the imperative lines rouse the reader to:
    ‘Follow the call of the silvery moon
    Run swiftly through the woods on soft paws
    Howl and sing loudly to her dancing tune’.
    I want to be out there running with the wolves.
