Promise of Spring
Bear is not vain
Chooses winter to be dormant
Kneeling in her cave
Padding the surface with soft grasses
Sleep away the winter
In the depth of her cave
All is still
Still life

Time to reflect
To contemplate
Fresh crisp greens of spring
Dotted along the river
Home of the salmon
Resolution
To reel in as many as she can

In Spring
She looks across the broad meadow
A spectacle that is new
A promise

  1. Thank you for bringing bear into my day, Annell. I wonder what warmer winters are doing to hibernation cycles?

    Your piece evokes images of Montana fields abloom. You brightened my morning, and I thank you.

  2. Wonderful word painting, Annell. I envy that hibernating bear; I’d like to crawl back into my cave and sleep a while longer… πŸ˜‰
