Red Wolf

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.

Now it’s your turn! Pick an animal, any animal, and write a poem or short story about that animal. Submissions can be sent to for a chance to be featured here on Babiekins Magazine Blog.

Happy Writing!
