We lived as kings
none as fierce
We unleashed massive power
taking what we needed
Impenetrable as we were
we did not understand
our inability to punch through
the black clouds
We lived as kings…
Thank you. May you dream of blue skies and rainbows.

You know what, AM — you have really given these giant kings the dignity they so richly deserve. Gosh, I really like them! I love the prose, too, and maybe that’s part of it, but all I can say is that looking at these two makes me feel … humbled and very much respectful of a species I’ve never known (and thank heavens never encountered). I really wish I could be a little more articulate here, I guess I’m just a little gobsmacked. So very strong indeed. The inability to “punch through the black clouds” — intriguing, beautiful (poetic) language.
I read that a T’rex’s head would pass a second story window and those lovely teeth – the longer ones – were 6″ to 8″ – that’s too much of a good thing.
But thank you as always, for the lovely words 🙂
I did not know that about their height and teeth. Good to learn something new every day! 🙂

I assume this is about humans as well, right? It is for me. Well, some people live as kings, you know the rich guys. Picture is great.
Yes it is.
Thank you. 🙂
I have never thought of a dinosaur as “handsome” before, but these two gentlemen are. Strong and (I will borrow Deb’s word here) dignified. – Fawn
Thank you, Fawn. 🙂
