A Stone In The Cold 5

The hunter hunted, the past comes stalking 
as three men in the high grasses arise.
Sworn enemies all, my skill they're mocking.
They wounded the bear; now they want the prize.

I load, I aim, I pull, my arrow flies
one enemy down, the others advance 
I round the bear and turn toward their eyes 
my buck knife out, I fight on in a trance.

My senses heightened, I exult in pain 
So crisp each forest leaf and grassy blade. 
So fresh the air, and wet each drop of rain. 
Three are down and the bear lies in the glade.

A deathly still descends upon these lands.
Ahead, the bear in sudden motion stands.

    Awesome that yours was picked for the crown. this is my early congratulations to you. WEll done, and I still love that idea of yours to hide in the cavity of the bear!! I sure wish they had chosen my sonnet to go with that idea in the ending one. haha

    This is a re-write for the Crown of Sonnets. My original is a different poem called A Stand in the Woods.
