Talking about The Wolf Shine Moon Time



The Wolf Shine Moon Time

This January night
The Wolf Moon Shine
Did not guide me home.
I took a Taxi.
As we sped across
a bridge that spans
The River
I saw, and said,
To my Driver
"Wow, Buddy….Look at that!"
He replied, " Been looking up
All night." 
I sighted the Moon again and sighed
To myself out loud.
" The Wolf Moon." 
Walt, the driver knew what I
was talking about.  We spoke of times
In the Great North Woods
And I pondered, ever glancing up.
Commenting here and there.
The trip had ended.  Paid my fare, with
A good tip and a handshake.
Paused on the steps, Then
Stood in the yard
Gazing at the Heavens
Ever Clear this Night
In the Wolf Shine Moon Time
Bright light that nearly drove me to
At the beauty of it All.
Spirits of Indians dance in the wind…..
I whisper softly with
Those who see in the Dark
And Listen in Silence as
The Wolf Shine
Moon Time
Draws a path in the skies
And in all the shadows.
Ever remember the Call.
As ever be well.  Stephen Craig Rowe

    Back in the 60’s & 70’s we had a radio station with a dj named Wolfman Jack and he would howl at the moon, and play rock n roll late at night. Everyone tuned in.Barbara

    It was beautiful last night. Truly beautiful. Had a wreath of light clouds surrounding it, and I had to resist the urge to howl…. I just shot it instead. Wished I was down at the lake to catch it rising… Must needs get film devleoped.. really need remote shutter release for time delay.. I don’t even care about technicalities, not this day…. just loved looking at it through my long.. long lens.. *s* Love the way you tell it Stephen..

    Oh, how I love this poem — and, Stephen, I put up a poem that turned out to be under yours – before I saw yours — that was similar, yet not – as if there was a photo and one was a beautiful photograph, and the other was the negative of the photograph, not only the negative, but what was happening in the edges of the photo–as i fyou’d taken a full clear picture of the beautiful moon shining down on that scene, and my poem is the dark edges of it…..Thank you for your poetry, your art — you are an inspiration.

    Thank you for the news hook up Stephen.It is good to know that there is still a decent news place out there. And I think what made it even better is that there are no commercials but at the same time the picture assortment makes it interesting to view. The media can be both corrupting and uplifting. And I think that your art and poetry does just the latter–uplifts and inspires. I often wonder if when you were young you dreamt of being a painter? Is this true?Take Care of yourself,Kelsey

    Many years ago, wolves were living in Galicia (España). Today, they are living in mountains of Lugo and Ourense,only, but when I was a child, to hear their howls, it was impressiveSorry, but I speak English very badUn saludo

    Managed to catch up with reading your poems. I was just thinking how apt it is to call your work here the painting studio. Because everyone of your poems paints a picture in mind as I read it. I espeically like the one here ‘The Wolf Shine Moon Time’. Brings back echoes of "American Graffiti" for me. Thanks for your work here Stephen. Believe me you are much appreciated!hugsTami aka Marine mom
