2014 APRIL PAD CHALLENGE DAY 13: “Sasha” (Poem)

Panther

Sasha

She’s a silent stalking shadow
on the metaphor of life,
faster than snapping neurons
inside a dream-filled night.

Her vision crystal clear before her,
all around and in hindsight,
she watches with cunning stillness
then pounces prey with might.

Her survival skills have saved us both
from many a gruesome flight –
she’s my Guardian of Darkness,
leading me towards the light.
