The Lioness

The night was young
with moon so full
and the sun just setting
beyond the horizon-
as the mountain lioness
stretched and yawned
lifted her head
and opened her eyes on
the eve of nocturnal.

Yet night passes quickly,
becomes another day
and is counted as years
on the threshold of an eon-
as the mountain lioness
follows an instinct
inherited from others
so that her watch should be on
this eve of eternal.
