The Lionness

As the sun beats down upon her, she laps the cooling stream

Stalking through the green grass, power courses in her veins

She lies meek in her mind, yet mighty is her heart

She licks her wounds golden, upon a crown adorned

Blistering red stokes her fires, yet orange is her sweetness

She’s been trampled in stampedes of fear

Her eyes not blind in blackness

Her pain in violet, indigo bruises,

Her roar is all you’ll know

Her bites can leave you mangled, yet she will make you whole

You’ll never see her coming

As you blindly seek power paraded by the main

She embraces the prowess inside her

Her love is the rain that reigns


**Dedicated to the beautiful, wonderful, incredible, magnificent Yassie.  Her poetry makes my heart skip beats and my mind race to create anything half as beautiful as hers.  I love you, dear one!!!  I meant to post this yesterday in celebration of International Women’s Day – we are all lionesses ❤ and we are all laced with gold***
