this is a crying out

this is a crying out
the music wolves make
but from one throat
howling
wordless & blown
through body made flute

is this love
or worship
summoning–

or are they
the same thing
sounding this call

that shakes bones

to sand

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    i’ve listened to peter in the past but didn’t recollect this one. just by listening to it i can certainly see how you got the feel from this. sometimes that is what i do, but usually the combo of words and music. i really like those last two lines.

  3. This is positively elemental. Don’t really want to listen to the Peter Gabriel thing, think I would rather let this work on me on its own terms. Thanks for the follow, and this great poem.

    • Thank you so much. I would not have said anything, but G.S. sounded a bit lost…only reason I mentioned Gabriel in the first place. Think it stands just fine on its own. Thanks for liking this, and for your follow as well. I am going to enjoy your writing and your comments!

  5. …..and another Russel Ray camping trip comes to an end………………..Hope all is well.
