She slept in her dreamy meadow,
underneath the safety,
of a shady Bodhi tree…
A fierce yet lone protector of,
her carefree cubs tumbling over,
one another and climbing the tree’s branches.
She slumbers inside you and I,
our secret sanctuary.
Until the world outside makes its challenge.
She will fight for herself; for her love.
Do you dare to awaken the tiger?
What wonders flow from her eyes burning bright,
In the darkness of the silent night.
