Trigger Warning

Commencing cold start
rollicking forward, prance of joy,
imaginary hunt in somber progress,
skill of riding breezes,
displayed grace,
kinetic motion.

Lion pride exuded,
mighty mass
healer and shifter,
killing the magic
of appearing elsewhere
in a surprising moment
of ideal synchronicity.

Striking amalgam
of love, devotion, content,
presence shifted to void,
but forever held in mind,
loud purr become
perfect memory.
