Spikey as a hedgehog
she looks into the book of life;
humble as a rabbit’s ear
she reads a sentence there.

Vibrant as a python
she walks across a dusty plain;
stronger that a mountain top
she turns to face the lion.

Breathing like a stallion
she waits before the city gate;
secret like an owl in flight,
dances to her fate.

Last night in my sleep
we damped down a fire;
to soften the heat
- so delight wouldn’t fly

but the feeling of dreams
is to zoom to the stars
rage across fields
not knowing how far.
