"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...


Becoming strong.

I dreamt of an Elk

7 points side by side

He towered over me

but i was not afraid

He lowered his head

i touched a large tine

it was smooth

my fingertips lingered

He nodded gently

and our souls met 

but only for a moment

then He turned away

Walking uphill

He paused at the crest

He gently beckoned me

our souls met again

I will follow.

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
