"If you want inner peace find it in solitude, not speed
And if you would find yourself,
Look to the land from which you came
And to which you will go."

Huntress

I look across the open plain
sun burning – glinting.
I see the wildebeest
chasing the lion…
Swarm intelligence
propelling her forward
and releasing her.
No longer bound to her
instinctual herding principle.
She has awakened.
She has left her children
to be protected by her clan.
She will no longer fight
only when attacked.
She will safeguard our future…
the lion senses this power shift
and is overwhelmed.
My huntress has caught her prey.
She rips into Screaming flesh.
The sound eternally seared onto
my consciousness.
She ravages her kill and
I cannot avert my gaze.
The wildebeest looks up at me
and whispers…..
mutiny.
