Welcome to Wolves Belong.com
(With My Pen!) My name is Karen LaFountain, throughout my life I have been a writer of poetry and stories.

So, I would like to introduce, Wolves Belong-Words, Wisdom, And Wilderness.
A website designed to educate the public of the peril to the our environment and the biodiversity of the inhabitants, like the grey wolf, and all wildlife.  Man’s unethical acts, or deeds impact earth, wildlife and ecosystem s so significantly. My ultimate desire is to educate and advise the public through my writings, teachings, and activism’ about the importance of our wilderness ecosystem and how wolves and other Apex predators are a positive contributor to our lives and world.
They are necessary to maintain species biodiversity. It is my hope that my words may inspire a more compassionate outlook and hopefully enlighten the public to bring an end contributing to the tragic consequences of putting financial profitability first, and the natural balance of our wilderness ecosystem next.

I believe those that manage these invaluable assets, possess greed, and severely lack compassion.

I believe that the gray wolf, (canis lupus), is an iconic and prolific cornerstone apex predator, that has a very positive impact on our ecosystem. Wolves, Grizzly Bears, other top predators are far more easily sacrificed to satisfy special interest groups with little thought to the severe negative impact to species proliferation or ecosystem health. .

LOOK INSIDE!

LOOK INSIDE!

Take a real good look inside,
And what do you see?

Because it all depends on your objectivity!

The criterion for viewing is to keep an open mind;

Leave all your preconceived notions well behind.

Can you peer into it’s depths, and know it’s sanctioned core?

Appearances of the outside, can they be ignored?

As with all things, human and animal alike,

They can be disguised by fear, anger, and might.

So take the time to understand your objects circumstance;

For you cannot possibly know it by just a passing glance.

And as you study, dare to peer in close, and you just may be surprised,

To see the gleam of happiness,
… Because you looked inside! …

POEMS AND STORIES by Karen LaFountain

THE ENCOUNTERavatar_1508320861978186552231.jpg

THE ENCOUNTER!

There is something in the distance, I can see the glow of yellow eyes;
Solemn and knowing, waiting,

Oh how his eyes did shine!
As my headlights hold his steady gaze, I cannot yet make out its kind.

He begins to move slowly in a crouch low to the ground;
Soon, it pounces effortlessly, remarkably without a sound.

He appears as large as a St. Bernard!
And remains 10 feet away, perched upon a rock, as he watches me with a strange regard.

I should back my car up and leave this place;
But the creature calls my attention, by way of his steady gaze!

I am drawn to his solemn stare, I feel him saying he is incredibly lonely;
I want to reach out, but afraid to leave my car, not just me alone, only!

Suddenly! He jumps effortlessly from his perch on the rock;
At this unsuspected action, my heart begins to knock!

He lands on my car’s hood, then through my windshield peers in on me;
I was mesmerized by his grandeur and gentleness, so it seemed.

“What do I do now”, I say to myself;
When this wolf leaps with such stellar and stealth!

I knew he possessed the strength to kill me, yet strangely, I felt only peace;
But just as calmness seemed to take me, the wolf took his leave!

Yet, as he stayed by my car, so I opened my window just enough, and I began to speak;
Hopefully to soothe our fears, and bring us both some calm relief.

I softly called him “sweet one”, and heartily I smiled;
He whined quietly, then moved closer to my car’s side.

He then leaned with his body, and turned his face to mine;
He howled then with longing, or so I did decide!

I wanted to remove our barrier, and reach out to touch his head;
But fear kept me inside my walls, so I spoke to him instead!

The beautiful beast stayed where he was, his glistening gaze followed;
I felt such pain in my heart, wondering why his eyes held such sorrow.

But alas, I knew I could not stay, and I began to back away;
However, the wolf seemed to plead with me, begging me to stay.

They say the wolf is mystical, and yes, I would agree;
For my encounter with this iconic predator, only brought me peace.

Now, a tear slips slowly down my face as I remembered his;
And the indelible mark upon my heart, inscribed when my eyes met his!

Hello and welcome to Writing Wrongs One Wolf At A Time!

My name is Karen LaFountain, and I would like to introduce a new website “Writing Wrongs Wildlife and Wilderness Conservation Advocacy – a webpage  to showcase my poems and short stories, under the domain name,  Wolves Belong.com

Using my craft as a writer, Iendeavor to bring awareness and understanding to the numerous activities currently underway by our state and national government and bring awareness to their ultimate goal of abolishing the Endangered Species Act, and to manipulate public opinion through propaganda with the ultimate goal of killing off the Gray wolf as a species entirely.

I would very much like to enlighten and hopefully change the minds of all who read my posts, promoting greater insight and tolerance of wolves, wildlife and wilderness.

Through my posted poems and short stories, Writing Wrongs And Wolves Belong,
It is my plan to educate the public and alert them to the peril of the grey wolf, wildlife and our wilderness environment or ecosystem.

I believe that the grey wolf, (canis lupus), is an iconic and prolific cornerstone apex predator, that has a very positive impact on our ecosystem.

It is my goal then to present my craft and ultimately educate the public through my writings, teachings, and activism’ about how wolves, as well as other wildlife predators, are positive contribtutors to our wilderness areas.

Only through positive management of the gray wolf, will their proliferation continue to benefit a healthy and diversified wilderness ecosystem.

All submissions under this catagory “Writing Wrongs and Wolves Belong” are written, copywrited and the sole property of Karen LaFountain.

The stories, poetry, and articles herein are written by Karen LaFountain and offered for your reading pleasure and contemplation.

CRITICAL POET

FB_IMG_1473282913585

Being a perfectionist makes poetry writing a never ending story!

It isn’t that it has to be perfect, so I can receive some kind of glory.

It is something inside of me that can’t leave well enough alone;

Second guessing every word, to find it’s meaningful home!

I know I’ve always been this way, questioning the value of my worth;

Perhaps in my youth, I was humiliated when I failed to present good work.

Through some act or deed I had failed somehow, and my face went red with shame;

But, I learned that my feelings though hurt, would recover just the same.

My heart has always led my life, destined to be a poet from birth;

I write to right life’s social ills and to fight for ethical worth.

I will continue to critique, though urgency guides this poet’s hand;

There is so much injustice, and little time, please join me and make a stand!

HOW WRONG THEY ARE

“My tastes are more profound than that”

I did not kill the cow;

I did not kill the calf!

My tastes are more profound;
You almost make me laugh!

I did not destroy your herd;

The thought is quite absurd,
I would not even think of it;
If my habitat lines werent blurred.

You claim game numbers are too low;
But, you are the cause of them you know.

And ranchers spin their tales,

hunters lie right through their teeth;

How elk numbers cant prevail.

You ranchers poisoned my children and then you shot my mate;

For them help just came too late!

And hunters slaughter us in horrid ways;

Snares keep us trapped for several days.

You treat nature without regard;
Now the wilderness bears your scars.

When you have succeeded in your task;
To rid the wolf at last.

You will find yet one more reason;
To have your killing season.

Your prey will know the strain;
Of living life under your tyrants reign.

You mislead others with folklore;
That the wolf is evil and at their door!

You claim you have been stalked,
While taking your dogs for a walk;

But, truth is I’m too weary of you, to lend truth to that talk.

It does little to tell you-you are wrong;
But you will be sorry when our kind is gone!

Your government possess the cogs to the deals;
In backrooms, politicians grease the wheels.

Another scheme fuels the machine;
Environmental restoration is never what it seems.

Wolf advocates and scientists alike, are filled with such desire;

Remaining entrenched to find the fix, exposing all the liars;

But, alas it is too late,
Our survival cannot wait.

Until such time man realizes,
Our worth and learns to compensate!

My Sword Of Passion

MY SWORD OF PASSION

 

 

Sometimes when words are locked in my mind,

And my weapon, the pen finds the paper unlined;

In a fight for life, I must follow the light,

Letting the passion of my sword to take flight.

To right natures wrongs, to ensure blurred lines are redrawn,

I use my pen as a pawn,

For the promise of tomorrows wolf songs.

Then I release the passion that is bottled inside,

Giving strength and devotion to lengthen my stride!

But on occaision a beast circles overhead!

This fire breathing dragon is what I most dread!

The foul acrid air of burnt words and more,

Threaten to bar creativity’s door.

Will I duel with the dragon, and fight fire with fire?

Or will my armor burn, leaving my wings entrenched in quagmire!

It will depend on the dragon’s defense,

I know I must not show fear or relent!

My sword of passion and it’s devotion to wildlife will take care of the rest;

There is so little sence in mans vast expanse!

His actions are unreasonable, greed has placed him in a trance.

To much is at risk to leave the future of wolves and habitat to happenstance.

So I must take up the sword as I have done all my life,

Knowing truth and honor cannot be denied!

Wish me luck!
