(an image of a tiger)
Isn’t he amazing?
I say he because the caption says so
I have no trouble believing that
The female is amazing
He sits among the roots and shadow
Of the tree
Resting or waiting? Is he
Hungry or in love or meditative?
Is he tired?
What will happen next?
I think he lay there for a long while,
A study in stillness
He stayed until he decided
What he wanted next
