Haiku challenge: Wolf & Cake

Ronovan’s challenge this week was the hardest one yet.


Mud-caked, hungry, cold,

wolf slinks through snowfall, hunting,

famine eyes dimming.

      1. I think wolves are such beautiful creations, but much misunderstood and maligned. Here the bears were subject to potshots. We had a bad blueberry season in the summer and they were hungry, roaming into communities to look for food. Sad!

      2. It seems to me we always look at the ‘cohabitation’ problem from the wrong angle. We destroy habitat, poison food sources, then we scream about predators coming too close to human habitation looking for food. Why is it always the wild animal at fault? Leave them enough food and they leave us and our crops/flocks alone.
