The Wild Beast

Lost alone in the forest,
I came upon a beast
A wild animal from the west.
It stared at ‘me’ its feast.
With large fierce eyes
Bellowing…it charged at me
I smiled at it-that heavy size
Suddenly it stopped & touched me
I looked into its eyes…
Which seemed to burst any moment.
I embraced,
The beast cried, astonished!
It wept away its beastly nature

Now clear and kind,
His eyes signaled submission
I beckoned, he followed
We walked back home
He lead me across the forests…
I told him what he was not,
Passed him all my love..
And so did he!
My home welcome us,
But the beast was nowhere seen!
Instead I walked into the halls of ‘living’-knowledge!
With another human being!
