The Darkest Beast

Incredible, the eyes of panthers, 
Cats with human skin, stare out at you 
From flowers, and rainbows stretch 
Like reins attached to some green beast 
Charles Rimbaud "The Drunken Boat'

 The Darkest Beast

From Eden , mankind prospers in deception,
has no outward signs of viciousness
No panther eyes that gleam maloevolance
No dagger claws that warn, as if
 a human lived within a cat's skin

Some elements of this human form, 
have a psychic channel to horrific powers;
like reins attached to some great beast
They revel in riding rough shod over flowers
and rainbows, and prefer destruction
 An abberation of creation's force-
a shape-shifter- hiding in beauty

O panther eyes that gleam from this small Eden
hiding in shadows behind bright leaves

Beware !  Beware mankind!
The darkest beast.

    What a wonderful poem you have written here SuZ. How I agree with you. Mankind, the only species that kill just for the pure pleasure of it. Yet within we have so much beauty. We just have to look within and find it. Really loved this poem, my friend....peter

    SuZ AMAZING!!! Your relaying of the hidden beast was attention grabbing and that in itself is wonderful; let alone how you did it and the content itself. Wonderful Lady :)

    Very deep Suz, Dropping by with SMILES and CHRISTIMAS CHEERS. Thank You for making this a great year for ALL OF US. I would also like to give you thanks for caring, during the loss of my grandson & mother this year. Thanks for the compassion. I learned the many stages of grieving ((by you)) Thank you once again for everything. May magic fill your days and all your dreams come true this holiday season.
