Jungle by night 1

Jungle by night

In the far jungle
The big bear of darkness lay
Crouched all night on leafy ground.

It glared through eyes of
Oil lamps of far away huts.
When dawn came, it slunk away.

Form: Personification in Form ‘Sedoka’( Syllables: 5-7-7, 5-7-7 )

S.Jagathsimhan Nair

Motif: Nature

For Mary Oliver Rotman

    This tickles the kid in me...I see a bear being entertained by the elements of civilization...then, as the morning comes, it's back to his own kind! Nice one, Jag. I missed reading your work...glad I stopped over to read some today! gwendolen
