I know the lioness,
her poundinghearted chase,
her swagger at the kill,
her lolling with her belly full
her soft, fecund hrumphing,
nuzzling, arching.

  1. We tend to forget the females are the real hunters & killers–the males primp and preen, napping, mating, fighting, and demanding their share of the kill.


  2. Wonderful, Sarah! I’m a Leo and I love all things feline. I especially love the ‘poundinghearted chase’, ‘soft, fecund hrumphing’ and ‘nuzzling, arching’.
