For Sandra Chausse


The noble, intelligent jaguar
Does not stalk through the night.

Much more initmate with the inky darkness
Through which she hunts her prey
The jaguar is a part of the night.

Eyes gliscening in the moonlight
A low rumble in her throat
This beautiful, lethal huntress,
Deadly killer in a luxurious spotted coat

Moves closer.

And closer.

And closer.

Before even seeing a hint of her fangs or claws
to feel her warm breath on your face is to know fear itself!

Pray that she just sniffs you contemptuously and walks away...

Jaguar, Take 2
Wow. This is so beautiful! You created such a flawless, picturesque image of the jaguar in action. You would enjoy the Imagist poets, such as Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams.

i must say
I must say she is right. The image is amazing...Im a fan of twists and turns, so at the beginning i wasnt all that into it, and when i reached the end i realised i had in my mind the perfect image of what u described! Quite remarkable
