The Lion

What Lion’s mane can shake the earth
or fill the air with an enormity of fear?

Whose roar ricochet past barren plain
and circles slowly back to all the earth?

When is man just a man while beast
or brawn buries burdened paws in dirt?

Where is the One, King of Kings, who rules
and He is Maker of both man and beast?

He sits upon His white throne and feeds
the mighty lion and the humble lamb!

You make darkness, and it is night, In which all the beasts of the forest creep about. The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God.”

Psalms 104:20-21

  1. I was hooked by your opening lines:

    ‘What Lion’s mane can shake the earth
    or fill the air with an enormity of fear?’

    I like the way you brought in the connection with the divine – a poem as powerful as a lion’s roar!

    You have captured the feeling of the times here! We do seem to be living through some kind of revelation. Well done.

  3. A well-structured poem, Patti – I love the way the questions are the backbone and then turn into an exclamation of praise. What a perfect way to being, with a shake of the lion’s mane!
