Reunion: Karen O’Leary

Karen O’Leary
Lone
wolf’s howl.
Can it be
El Lobo’s call?
Poachers chased the wolves
away, many travelled
safely to a large wildlife
refuge twenty-five miles away.
I open the back patio door
and drop into a chair as El Lobo
bounds up the stairs. We embrace then he tucks
his head in my lap. I scratch behind
his ears then rub his layered fur.
He lifts his head then eases
toward his family (mate
and two six-month-old
pups.) I pet each
then they leave,
one in
hope.
