French Sea In Haikus; Fragments Of A Mother

A lioness speaks;

Of war, breeze, and battle scars

Whispers to her cub

Anguished cries of a

Cracked child pulled from the warm mud

Kissed wounds for a dime

Soft-furred open paws

For the ripped paper doll kids

Claws to the matches

But lioness in a

Sundress, a wicked guide for

Bandaid heroines

Scarlet lullabies

Harsh bark of a gentle tongue

Cub in a straight curve

Twilight roars, star-jaw

 Hot coals for a shattered view

Black glass finger-kiss

A lioness bites;

Cracked neck of a passerby

Royal feast in stains

Splattered in the wake

Cub limping, picturesque take

On tired shoulders

A blue-green meadow

Home torn from her jagged teeth

In broken bones; peace

But lioness in a

Gold-crown, a limelight for the

Bandaid heroines
