G8 and Mexican Gray Wolf News and Poetry

G8
think they’re great
but they ain’t as quaint
as sw-love being an
anagram for wolves
with Mexican grays
a reminder of the old ways
surviving with the help
of conservationists
raising Arizona
to wildlife nirvana

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey. Hope you don’t mind my above new poem, combining the news that the G8 are meeting today and tomorrow in Ireland with great gray wolf news from USA Today that more endangered Mexican gray wolves are being released in Arizona, south-west U.S.A. There’s only about 70 Mexican gray wolves left.

To complete my poetry and news, with a combination of the two, Marc Latham has also published another Bergen, Norway-inspired nature topic Folding Mirror poem on fmpoetry.wordpress.com. Here’s the poem; there’s more explanation and a couple of photos over on fmpoetry:

Water Landscape, Mountain Canvas

sky spoke an ancient tale
in snowflakes and raindrops
sign language
wind written
on mountain arms
warmed by trees

nature’s cold beauty, interpreting warm message

water and land
intriguing relationship bond
misty apparition
delivering reminder
while replenishing forest waterfalls
best in life is free
