The Bear

I love to watch nature shows on television, whether they’re about plants, birds or animals. I especially like those that focus on bears. Bears fascinate me; they seem so human the way they stand on their hind legs and shuffle along like humans. Nature shows often portray the bears in spring with a mother and her young cubs scurrying along beside her. And I feel a bit sad when they show the male bear, lonely most of the year, trudging along in fall, looking for another place to spend his winter alone.

autumn morning
one more dream of a friend
I haven’t seen in decades
