AND


no one roars
staring into the waters -
frightened creatures
❧✿❧
no one roars -
these pandemic days
full of stillness 

staring into the waters
a fierce lion king morphs -
into a lamb

frightened creatures -
seek the peace of healing
for a broken earth

Happiness and safety are very good reasons for covering half of one's face, methinks.
