CLAWLESS + ARKive – Jaguar video – Panthera onca – 08j

like bottled lightning

fire within her

flash burns from past

lighting inner eyes

masked like a raccoon

her smile hides cracked lips

corners of her mouth

torn;  difficult birth

painful reminders

of fury’s silence

she can not hide from

herself; bury hot fury

afraid her inner

jaguar’s precise claw

to jugular kills prey

spew molten blood

an elective mute

holding onto floss

praying inner-deer

arrives, rage at bay

until one clean swipe

frees pent-up wild roars


I wrote this poem five years ago. With the heat surge, weather and non-weather related, the poem caught my temperamental eye this morning.  I used to suppress anger–had ignored the reaction altogether. As I grow older, my fierceness graces with tempered flair.

I discovered a video encapsulating this poem.  Doesn’t such synchronicity blow your mind into smithereens 🙂

Have a look see……….

      This one is out of my Blog-box for sure. Thanks for your support. You know my many scratches beneath my surface. Glad you enjoyed the poem, the video and the power behind synchronicity…..the best part in my opinion.
