Bear and Salmon

Written by: Karen Deeks

Bear.....

stone clad shores
welt beneath your warmth
fir lined trees
stand silent in your presence
misted waters raise to greet a vibrant sky in jubilation

as salmon fight ferocious rapids
you
intent
listen and watch
baited breath
silent

your cumbersome claw hovers as a wieghtless mosquito
dancing hithertoo
for that oh so perfect
catch

titanium
spray
avoids your touch
end the salmon's day
