Review of my poem, Hunger to Survive

From the Facebook group, Canada Writes,an author, Theresa Wilson, wrote:


Hunger to Survive

The lion lays quietly atop an overhanging hill.
He waits, watches in the vain fervor that his prey
Will come to him in deadly night like a diet pill
That will stop his hunger and permit his teeth to stay
Sharp, glistening white, creating a shiver of fear
Of their ferocity and ability to tear apart an arm,
Or important extremities that flash their spear
Of speed trying to outrun the King.

The atmosphere of fear is so authentic
That I can feel the lion’s eyes shifting silently,
Watching guardedly, waiting patiently to pounce happily
On his unsuspecting prey. His jaws are cave like
In their imposing strength and force of bite.

Never fear the lion, for you know he attacks
To survive, not for pleasure.
Fear those who appear like sheep, but are
More serpent or fox, for their poisons
Attack the soul and destroy lives as if doing you favors.

Appreciation certificate from United Poets @Heart

For my Fibonacci poem, Lone

Lone

One
lonely
Boy, shy
Tries making
A friend flying
Into the unknown,
Lonely. One. Loneliest
Number ever. It tests hardest
When you’re surrounded by familys’
Best, whose envy alienates you farthest.

Standing alone with a whirring world
That’s confusing, struggling blind,
Into unknowns that surround,
Bind your moves. Loud
Is the thunder around
That drowns bad
Decisions
Needing
Greater
Care.

The sun and moon have an understanding


Neither takes over the other by encroaching


On their exact time. Play their lullaby while boasing.

Fearful Expectations

Reading of ‘Fearful Expectations’ from my poetry book, Perfectly Flawed. It’s about paralyzing fear that binds you in a place of terror. Courage of only one who overcomes it and moves on.
