Artist's Description

A charcoal pencil drawing on A4 paper. A new medium for me and very interesting to work with. He is King of Kings.
Of course this is also Jesus the Lion of Judah.
15th February 2010

My very good friend GGGlory was inspired by this picture to write a love(ly) poem and it works so well with the picture that I couldn’t keep them apart.

His Queen

Attracted to his full,smoky mane
Billows speaking of dominance-n-wisdom
Tolerant ears peaking for cubs to chew and me to gnaw…
His slender face focused on staying strong

Sternly furrowed brows settle the matter
Not a word spoken
Yet,wrinkles reveal thoughts of concern-n-gentleness
Leaving me feeling loved,not forsaken

Then instantly mesmerized-I’ve fallen into those eyes
Captivating pits,repressing the darkness of stories untold
I too,have travelled through
Symmetric tunnels of hurt,failure and disappointment

Mouth ajar only for comfort
Very few words said
To steer clear of lie-telling and dream-selling
Expressions of compromise overshadowed by razor-sharp whiskers
Arrogant but realist he’d say

Oh how I long to rub against you
A flirty flick of the tail across the face
Warming our hearts with a kiss,let them sing
Always knew I’d be his queen-excuse me-I mean
Mrs King
