Gracefully, Aslan (Poetry Month – Day X)

Aslan is the main character of C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia series

“As he appears in Narnia, Aslan is a large, talking lion, who is terrifying, magnificent and beautiful all at once. He appears in different sizes to different people, although he himself never changes; as people grow in wisdom and character, they can perceive more of his greatness. Aslan is very wise, and a powerful force for good, but as Narnians often say, “He’s not a tame lion.” He is dangerous, and an unconquerable enemy, but he is unquestionably good.”

Aslan, due to my faith and my relationship with Christ, is, by far, my favorite fictional character.

Gracefully, Aslan

Hearing its call for help,
the great lion bowed

his head, allowing
the butterfly, as bright

as hope, to rest
atop his mane

as he softly spoke
the tired creature’s name.
