an old lion

his once full mane

bedraggled, matted, thinning

yet his roar remains

broken teeth/ an old lion

with broken teeth

an old lion tries to gnaw

a bone but cannot

on newly fallen snow
betrays a field mouse

this morning's breakfast
growing cold
the pain of loss

for Jordan, gone too soon and for his mom

youth's bloom still on him
he leaves this life behind him
while a mother grieves
