Whispers of a Wallflower

This is a poem that I just wrote using the concept of a wallflower, in its meaning of a person who will show up in a social setting but avoid the spotlight. My great-uncle wrote a poem about a wallflower once that my mother liked, and though I haven't read it, I was inspired by it.

Waltz of the Winter Wolves

This is a poem that I started a few weeks ago as I was driving home from work in the middle of the day. There is a large lake next to the highway and it was frozen over and covered in snow and I saw two gray wolves running around together on the ice and thought it was oddly beautiful.
