Temple Guardian

Temple guardian
Baring teeth
Snarling at visitors
Seeking peace

Around an angry face
Long beard flowing
In the evening light
Drawn swords glowing

Potbelly stove comes to mind
A fierce tummy
Hairy toed sandals
Wouldn’t want to get chummy

Yet I feel safe
As I enter the shrine
Protected and peaceful
Oh guardian mine
