The Tiger Lord

K’lee L. © 2013

As I passed through the jungle,
A resonating chime sounded in my head.
In the space of a single breath,
The Tiger Lord appeared.
He held me in his gaze,
Perhaps deciding whether to strike,
Or whether to listen to my entreaty.
That he offered the choice
Was enough for me to quickly
Offer him my gift.
I sang him a song, a song
Of wild jungles and tangled vines,
Of thunder and rain, of running
Unfettered.
I sang to him of a Tiger Princess,
Of surpassing beauty and sensuousness
With a pelt of orange, gold, and black
The Tiger Lord closed his eyes
A single tear falling on the grass before him.
I looked away, afraid I caused him pain,
When I turned back to him, he had
Vanished.
Only to reappear a final time
He smiled at me and nodded
Giving his permission for me to
Continue on  my way
Through his jungle still
Singing his song.

    1. I second that notion! Glad I found you too… Thanks for liking the story. I started following what I felt from some of my recent photos and that’s what’s been coming out of my brain!

      Yes, I’m right now working on a novel-sized story. First couple drafts are complete. I’ll be posting more about it as I get close to finishing it. Hope to use some original art work AND a song or two…sky’s the limit, right? Love to get some opinions!

    1. Yes!!! You heard right. The book is “done” in that sense of books being done goes. I’m now at the stage of looking for able-bodied beta readers! Think you might be interested? Let me know as I continue to prepare my list and I’ll add you. Oh, and thanks for all your support and encouragement… it means a lot.
