Art work by Teva Gallery
In the open coldness of the air
lurks a wild beast
who stomps through forest ground
shaking his coat from freshly fallen snow.
Under the round glowing moon
he leaves a trail of broken paw prints
that quickly become untraceable.
In the navy night of darkness
you can see him softly touching soil
his red fur, distinguished
as if he swallowed a sun beam
and shared it with the world.
