Huntress

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.
