These gentle hearts are like shot birds falling

...on belonging


The hour of the wolf…

It is the hour between night and dawn.

It is the hour when most children are born and most people die.

It's the time when the wolf is lurking outside the door,

                         when the ghosts and demons are most powerful,                          

when sleep is deepest,

when nightmares are most real.     

It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fears

                          and all they can hear is the sound of their heart.                            

It’s the hour of the deepest confession…
