wolf:a haiga by deinktvis wolf:a haiga by deinktvis
19.12.11

a haiga collaboration with =charrlie for :iconchamanics-pathways: contest [link] .

the contest themes we used in this collaboration are 'symbol' and 'myth' the visual sets the topic of 'wolf' and the text explores various aspects of the topic in world symbolism and mythology.

her original image can been found here: [link]

the poem, by *mrnakes, is a haibun:

wolf

lupa suckled rome's first twins; the ainu of japan believed themselves offspring of deity and wolf-kind. asena, the wolf-born, founded the empire that ruled the turkic nomads. Wolves both accompany and will be the end of the mighty god odin. the first men, killing wolf, brought death into the world for the pawnee of north america. in both christian and muslin traditions the wolf is a symbol of avarice and destruction.

wolf: revered and feared;
mercurial as the moon
whose homage you sing.

thank you :) i wasn't completely sure of the flow on the prose part of the haibun.

one of the reasons i like collaborating so much is that it takes me into areas of thought and subject matter i might not otherwise have explored. in short, it is an opportunity to grow :)

and thanks for the :+fav:! please let my collaborator know you liked our work!
