This one got re-written so many times. But I feel it was worth the effort. I’m actually kind of proud of this one now. Ironically, the inspiration for this was from a rather sad dream I had. Seriously, almost woke up in tears!
Lion and wolf
Tip of an iceberg
The lion roams far from home.
Lion, he spoilt the kit,
Left the fridge neat and labeled,
But forgot the food on the table.
The wolf howled,
Feelings flung to the moon,
For her, a bitter farewell.
Though the parting was long pass;
The lion roamed in the grass
And the wolf followed the moon,
Both believing their meeting inopportune.
The wolf watched an iceberg drift
lion’s feelings buried deep with in.
That which she would never know,
only descendants could ever show.
No longer bound
By love and label
The wolf left the kitchen table.
The kit, now a cub,
Grew wild and free,
Lion but a distant memory.
As planets aligned
Too different in nature
For paths to remained entwined.
