“The Bear”

By Fírinne

 

Padded paws are lying like stones,

one and two and three and four,

resting atop the pine-needle bed.

A lazy rhythm of weighted snores

escapes the overlap of a wet, leathery

mouth. Rising and falling, like a broken

elevator in this silent uncivilised wilderness –

the heavy chest of the woods’ keeper

is a sore sight for trespassers. Matted

and dull are the bristles of blanketed fur

embracing the dozing creature, as natural

a part of him as heart-hammering caution

is natural to all that approach.

Don’t poke the sleeping bear.
