The peony-type flower seen on the right is so very much like a lion's mane, the body carrying over to the left. I am remembering Alice in Wonderland flowers in a sense... and then not so much as this is a more powerful, and kinder, creature.
Effusing love and passion. Immersed in self-expression having broken free of the caged confines it had allowed itself to be trapped behind. One can see the bars at the top of the work having broken off... I assume it happened the moment the lion decided to no longer be a caged creature.
This text showed up in the middle of the night. No poet, i am, but will place it anyhow because it belongs to the work:
i would love every inch of you
til dawn's rays kissed your skin from the window
you would be mine only
we would adventure unexplored lands
freely given | openly received | amplified | shared and exchanged
i would love you til morning of every, endless, day
