I decided to scrap the essay/blurb/whatever that I had started writing and instead write something more in-depth- and more "me"- about duiker (and eventually one about puma). It needs refining, but I thought I'd post it here and see what everyone thinks. Oh, and if someone could suggest a better title, please do. :P

(Cross-posted from my personal journal after some thought...)

I have to wonder, when Rudyard Kipling wrote those words as part of the lupine Jungle Law, the law that young Mowgli grows to live by while raised by the Mother Wolf Raksha, if he could have known just how accurate he was?

These two pieces were written months apart from each other but pertained to the same "threat" and I think they show an interesting contrast between the reactions (to the same thing) of my cat and horse aspects. The actual "threat" isn't as serious or dangerous as it may sound in these, but that's part of what I wanted to portray--a basic, instinctive response that wasn't as rational and logical as that of my human mindset, because this is how I believe I experience some of the mentalities of feline and horse, and thus I sought to capture them finally (or one event/type of reaction) in writing while they were occurring in my mind. Though the first one, "Feral Fire", incorporates more of my human thought into it, particularly in the last stanza, than the second piece, which kind of reflects the prominency and level of blending with my human aspect that my cat 'type has been the past couple of months.

It's been too long since I've posted a writing here (though granted, I've barely produced any therianthropy writings since November last year).  A couple of weeks ago I tried a new approach to my writing because I felt the thoughts I wanted to express wouldn't have been delivered as well as I wanted in my typical way of writing, thus I went with a type of 'poetic prose' in a style different from what I've tried before.  Although the format might seem somewhat odd, I like how it turned out overall and though it didn't capture entirely the 'essence', per se, of what I sought to capture in it, the finished piece did capture a satisfying amount of it.

My home has no place. Only time.


I am the coyote
The chill bark at sub-noon
With fall for prairie sand
To meet it, iconic
And to yelp at, ironic.
I am the walk-as-man
Will of godheads and moons,
Blue moon,
The boom that was sonic
The howl.
I am Arcturus
With wilting blue for one eye
And tilting through the last sky.
With rat-a-tat-tat, with days yet another
I am the Era
Where coyote became
Wolf's elder brother.

Short, rapidly inspired piece about the differences in bodily locomotion between a quadruped and a biped, also touches on senses and personal vision.

More poetic than explanatory, methinks, but take it as you please.

Comments, opinions, critiques, all welcome.

Thanks, Akhila, for creating this community! It's a splendid idea, and I look forward to reading what goes on in here.

For those of you who don't know me: hi. I'm rather horrible at introducing myself, but I have an essay-thing that could do the trick. I look forward to getting to know everyone! =)
