In the night

The Silent Drum From Far Away
Book two of Dreaming With The Wolves.

peaceful moments

in the night

that are so quiet

in the sweetness

of the moonlight

those peaceful


that time stops

the world is standing still

and a gentle breeze

goes by

followed by a

wild hawks cry

that is piercing in the night

& stirs the emotions

deep inside

& it is a warrior’s cry

the battle in the heart

begins to rise

as defiance starts to

run through the veins

of the peaceful soul

& a silent drum from far away

starts to beat on this here night
