Loving the Lion

will not kill
the queen- yellow
lion feed the bee.
Survival rides upon
the wind, the child's breath scatters
seed.  Gold finch come, a banquet set
feast before summer 's demise.  Love the
lion and her seed, love the yellow weed.

    Gotta disagree. Your imagery is excellent! I got hung up on the bee and the lion, took a while to get to dandelion - the yellow weed. Anyway, I took a stroll through your stuff again tonight to see why I put you on my fav list. Your haiku! Imagery!!!! Yes, write more when you feel like it. I've taken some time off from writing poetry - doing stories for a while. But, and I think you know this, writing does not let go of us, no?

    Second read - finally got it! (I'm dense) Love the touch, the layout and, the story.

    Not dense - I'm just not good at with imagery. =) Thank you for the read and kind words. I haven't done any writing for a long while, maybe it's time to start again.
