Rumors

Wispy feathery clouds in the morning sky

Some words spoken

Float past us like wispy

Feathers in the sky

Nebulous clouds bringing doubt

Uncertainty and confusion

Why Do Lions Roar?

Why Do Lions Roar?  Graphic of a lion roaring--Cinquain poem

Why do lions roar?
Answer:

They roar to communicate with each other and they roar to proclaim where their territory is, they do this every evening.
Roaring is also one of their strategies for catching prey – they creep up on the prey and when they are close enough,
they will let out a roar that confuses that animal(s) and strikes fear into the lion’s prey.
The prey then cannot “think” or react correctly out of fear and so is trapped and caught by the lion.

The Thief in the Night

Beware of the thief in the night
He only comes to kill, steal and destroy
His entrance is a sorry plight
To remove peace and take away joy

He only comes to kill,steal and destroy
His agenda includes an evil plan
To remove peace and take away joy
And he uses confusion and chaos whenever he can

His agenda includes an evil plan
He kills hope and destroys dreams.
And he uses confusion and chaos whenever he can
His purpose is to remove all good it seems

He kills hope and destroys dreams
His entrance is a sorry plight
His purpose is to remove all good it seems
Beware of the thief in the night
