Baby Lion

You bought a baby lion
And you didn't tell
Then you made me watch as you wrestled it
You laughed and blinked

A fateful blink for that was your last
Off you fell to your chilling lust.

Haiku Trilogy

Haiku Trilogy 

Fox poises mid-step

Rabbit scent tantalizes

Mouth waters wildly


Eyes peer intently

Haunches crouched, slung low to ground

Biding time to spring


Mountain lion growls

Padded feet part tall grasses

Hunter now hunted

Leo living large
Lion lying in his lair
Big belly bloated

Zebra and Zebu
Warily watching, worried
Ready to run

Fatigued full feline 
Snoozes in the savannah
Animals amble

Nature Speaks

NATURE SPEAKS(satirical Haiku)

The wind blows heavy
The branches of trees dancing
Baboon is thrown out.

The Bird  is singing
Butterflies feed on  nectar
Chameleon  dormant.

The bee is buzzing
flame of the forest blossoms
....And the lion king dies.

The mighty lion
sees his own face in the pool.
Does he get frightened?

He drinks of the pool
after a meal of  fresh meat.
Is his parched throat quenched?

He lays in the shade
resting his weary eyelids.
What haunts his nightmares?
