Mother lion knows

Choosing her battles

Gingerly as she goes

Which worlds she straddles

~~*~~

Hunger drives her decisions

Protection of her family pride

Sometimes the fear of derision

Where there is no place to hide

~~*~~

Waiting is a part of her strategy

Silence an art form and tool

Knowing what is called for in energy

No one can ever call herΒ a fool.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
