Beloved Tiger

I took this photograph of a tiger at a zoo. He is looking off into the distance.

I wrote this poem to go with the image. This is how I felt.

Beloved Tiger
by Mary Mikawoz (2020)

Off in a Distance
You Dream
Of Bygone Days
And Solitudes

Yet you Continue to Roam
In Your Mind
Of Distant Lands
Of Chasing Game
And Wildlife
Of Embracing Life

Your Path and Destiny has diverged
Once Upon a Time
To be Captive Here
For our Amusement
In this Human Zoo

Sorry for our Indulgences
Sorry for the captivity
One Day You Will be Free Again!

Softy Snowing

Softly Snowing

by Mary Mikawoz (2019)

It is starting to snow – softly and ever so eloquently
It rejoices and falls to the Earth
Displaying non-judgment
And good discretion

It is an act of nature
Ever so poetic
And brilliant in its execution

The snowflake
of itself is divine
Different each one
Designed by God

Wonderfully quiet and serene
The pleasantness of calm
In its absolute honour it descends to the ground.
