the line...for all the lost lions

there is a line that for eons, is.
when nature decides.
we accept.
but when failing humans
intercede,
the divine line
is broken.

cecil and other lions
proud kings and queens
fathers, uncles, mothers, aunts
sisters,brothers
family...
keepers of their history,
now slain
the magnitude of
their deaths.
ignored or lost in a haze
of non-comprehension.

the cubs, born to carry
the power within their
bloodline,

and what of them.

and what of us,
flawed yet able to
do so much better...

why don't we!!!

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
