Cat and Mouse

But in nature, “the lamb always gets eaten,” said ecologist Craig Packer, director of the Lion Research Center at the University of Minnesota. “It’s quite common for cats to play with their prey and they can look very gentle doing it. But it always ends in tears,” he said.

From: The lion that befriended the antelope

I was

Settled on the cold, stony ground spotted

With lucky red seeds.

From behind the colours

Then emerged

The pride of lions.


Roaring in your glory.

Nonchalant, bulky shoulders.

Big, bold eyes, exuding confidence.

Deep, husky, young voice

Delighting gamakams.

Your dark mane, chest golden.


The passion, the respect that you commanded.



Your nuances and expressions,

Grunts and purrs,


The lion’s dance;

Your graceful leaps,


During the sustained drum roll of the madhalam I was


How exciting,

The way you shook your head in enjoyment

As the ilathalam chimed

You gazed directly into my eyes


Melodies of excellent affection.

Chin tucked in..

Sweet smile playing on your lips.


Deer caught in headlights.



Am I your prey?

Or are you my King?
