Secrets

outside on a winters night
when all else sleeps
the wolf slips into wakefulness
in a flurry of white
snow flake free-falling
whispering secrets of peace

tumbling to the earth
in merry abandon
the tinkling of
their laughter
resounds on the staunch
night air

binding together they cuddle
in close comfort
and when the other world wakens
it finds the sleeping snow
the wolf quilted in anonymity

the secrets of winter are safe
