    JESSE

    June 25, 2015

    I wrote this during a Carolyn Conger 5 day consciousness seminar given at a ranch near Sacramento.  The ranch owner was looking after her long absent son’s big gray dog Jesse.

    IN THE FIERCE, DEAR WINDS OF OUR SEARCHING,
    IN THE DAUNTING ELUSIVENESS OF OUR POSSIBILITIES,
    IN OUR THIRSTING AFTER AWARENESS ITSELF,
    ARE WE OVERLOOKING
    THE MOST MAJESTIC CREATURE IN OUR MIDST?

     

    ASSAULTED BY AGE
    SHE WANDERS AND WANDERS AND WANDERS,
    ENDLESSLY SEARCHING TOO
    FOR ONE LONG ABSENT.
    HER ANCIENT GRACE ASTONISHING
    AS A BABY’S FIRST SMILE.
    HER RAVAGED, BLINDED FACE
    HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL STILL,
    THE VERY ESSENCE OF WOLF.

     

    DO YOU KNOW WHY MEN DELIGHT
    IN KILLING WOLVES?
    WOLVES ARE BETTER AT FAMILY AND COMMUNITY,
    BETTER AT LIFE.
    HOW MADDENING!
    TO BE BESTED BY OUR INFERIORS.

     

    THE BITTER SUBTRACTIONS OF AGE
    HAVE NOT DIMMED HER DIGNITY.
    HER WANDERING GATE,
    SO CAREFUL, GENTLE, RELENTLESS,
    SPEAKS OF HER NIMBLE PAST
    AND HER NOBLE PRESENT,
    SPEAKS OF HER LONGING.

     

    SHE HAS RISEN TO SIMPLICITY.

     

    COME HOME MY YOUNG MASTER,
    MY OWNER,
    MY FRIEND.

     

    COME HOME TO ME
    AND I WILL GIVE YOU
    MY LIFE.
