Seemingly shrouded in black

Mysterious like smoke 

Yet powerful like a thundercloud

They are humanity

An elegant being

Wrapped in dark satin

Representing both 

Life and death

At the core they are red

Like flitting flame 

Or rushing blood

The red portrays energy

And strength like that of a thunderbolt

The strike of their power

As well as danger and war

Like scarlet dripping from ivory K9’s

That just sank into prey

This red is not only that

It is love and desire

Surrounding a center of yellow

Resonating loyalty and joy

The instinct to protect

The scene of a female 

Guarding its mates throat

From it’s own kind who has become

Consume by only deep pulsing

Grotesque red

And it’s ears

I piercing light

Contrasting the rest

A symbol of purity and safety

Like a halo around a head

Showing angelic quality

This is no ferocious beast

No flame encased with dark shadow

It is a spirit

One that has walked the earth for millions of years

Who has gone through the trials 

And has become a symbol of personal power

Armored with balance and self control

And you can see it all

In its eyes
