Egyptian Princess

Long eye-lashes
painted face
a certain air betrays her race
her royal expression is not common place
strong, sleek-
she’s a stately grace
holds herself regally
chest held high
dignified,
posture perfect royalty
absolutely feline
acute vision,
wisdom’s eyes
when she curls herself small
she gently defies
preconceived ideas of where truth lies…
her agility and manner 
reveal her family ties
swat, snarl, a gentle bite
playing with her prey is sheer delight
Her roots remain
there’s no denying 
this Egyptian Princess
hails from lions.

    Regal verse befitting such a queen! I like the way it could be about a human female up to the final line of the third stanza. Lovely cat too!
