Premium Member Is it Moving Closer
Is that a lion or a large beige rock?
In the distance. Up that hill.
Don’t POINT!
I kind of see it.
Is it moving closer?
I cannot tell yet.
When are you going to be able to?
I do not know.
Come on!
I need to know if...Read More

In my head a war is raging
No agreement, there’s no pact
Anger wants to be the leader
Rule my thoughts, and with no tact

Then comes Conscience with his reason
Something must be done, and fast
Quickly he sends for Discernment
And hopes this tension will...Read More

Old habits die hard
Got to hold it together, try to keep my cool, 
Even when dealing, with imbecilic fools,
Should know better, but they freak me out,
When in the wrong, they just scream and shout,

My problem is, I won’t back down,
Especially if right, and...Read More

Premium Member Chained
I walk with a stranger
Talking slowly never looking at him
I watch my shoes
Shuffle along the steel floor
Knowing the lie
I retreat inside
And then I die
Slowly ever so slowly
Heart and soul not with standing
I am a monster in plain clothes
Taking from everyone

Born Free
The Lion looks forlorn as he paces around the cage
Humans staring at him
As if he was on a stage
In a Circus or a Fair
He was king of the jungle
And needed to be there
He wanted his freedom
That is every animal's right

Ripped from dying white rabbits pocket

Took his hat as he

Premium Member Act Your Old Age

What's this thing about... “Act your age!”
Body's old, but my mind's cagey as a lion in a cage
Should be “act your OLD age”

Have more respect for your elders at this late stage

Excuse me. 
There’s a lion on your back, I say.

Wood burning stove weather
While outside nor'easter
howls like banshees
vents temperature dips
into low double digits
fire breathing friendly
dragon (cue Barney

purple dinosaur)
crackling hearth,
yours truly snuggling
close proximity warming,
thawing, quelling...
cockles and muscles

atavistic visitations hover
brushes within subconscious
purring, mew zing catacombs
kickstarting, harkening,
dawning... Homo sapiens
lion eye zing forebears

dormant memories thaw
predators vastly outnumbered

Baby love
So ready to play
Trumpets happy attitude
Mother not far off
Ready to rescue

There are dangers

She lets him think he's independent
Keeping close enough to save him
At the first sign of danger
Baby elephant plays

Days of the Depressed
No sounds, no colors, no feelings,
It's just another day.
A disease, crushing and stealing
I don't remember how to play.

It seems to sneak up on you,
Like a Lion stalking its prey.
Suddenly you're sad and blue,
But it wasn't always this way

Giraffe at the watering hole

She splays her forelegs one at a time
levering, leaving dignity

half sideways split; then bends
to drink, hoping no 
lion arrives
