Open Your Mouth And Roar

Lion of Judah

Open your mouth, and                  ____


                Cause my love to glow


                Cause my dreams to soar

                                Please make my dreams come

                                True                                                                       ____


                                Please cause me to live like


                Show your strong teeth

                To my enemies


                Make them buckle, make

                Them shake at their knees

Lion of Judah,

Open your mouth, and                  ____

    You using the sound of the lion and adjective associated with that animal made me pause. That was a good effect, like a subtle command. Did you use the shape of a lion’s head? I can see one, if not them I am coco for coco puffs :P.

      Thank you very much! I wasn’t really going the Lion’s head perse more like his paw and scratch marks (the aftermath of his power) but if you interpreted something different that is awesome!

        The power of an imagination.

    I like this. (I’m probably a little biased as I wrote about the Lion and the Lamb ) But i do think that your words and how you arranged them helped me to feel the power of the Lion and his ROAR!

      Thanks! I love lions and im crazy about the Lion of Judah so it was an easy source of inspiration. I would love to check out more of your pieces as we bond over our love of poetry and the One that roars in our lives.
