The Lion




The Lion

 

Sufficiently endowed

              with brains, heart

                            and plenty of pride

                                          (on occasion),

                                   still sorely lacking

                                           the courage      

                         to brave      

       but a single

                              step                                  

                along that             

           golden path,

                   minus the

                                company  

                              of his most loyal

                                 (and courageous)         

                                                      companions                           

                               .

                       .

                        .     


This poem [an attempt to “wake 2 lions” (better than "killing 2 birds"!) with one stone] was written in response to 2 separate prompts:

1)  Robert Lee Brewer’s “Poetic Asides”:  


  an ANIMAL-BASED POEM


AND

2)  Walt Wojtanik & Marie Elena Good's "Poetic Bloomings": 

  WHAT'S YOUR SIGN?

   (Mine's Leo.)
