Favorite Quote:
Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."

She stands alone.
Her companions are the trees, frogs, and birds.

Her domain is quietly undisturbed.
The noises of life hum in the green around her.

She has no shelter.
She's always confident and secure.

Her stripes are unique, like no one else.
She bears the uncanny family resemblance.

She's feared by all.
She's loved my many.

She is a priceless prize.
None would dare claim her.

Her majesty is famous.
She is hidden and demure.

She is a fierce predator.
She gently purrs herself to sleep
In the sunlight.

The author's comments:
This poem is partly about tigers and partly about contradiction. In each stanza, one line contradicts the other, but my point is that even though they contradict, they are both true.
