FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE #8

I love all cats no matter their size or breed. The majestic lion is certainly at the top of my list. When 13-year-old, Cecil, was killed in 2015 on a hunting expedition, I was deeply saddened. Most lions in the wild live to an average of 15-years and those in captivity to as much as 30-years.

This photo prompt inspired me to write the following Haiku poem.

  1. I have a tender spot in my heart for big cats. I felt such hatred for that ridiculous dentist posing in the picture with the dead lion. I wanted to slap that grin off his face. My heart was broken. Cecil was a beautiful creature. You captured that sadness and outrage with your haiku, Karen. Bravo! ❤ xo
