Grizzly bears dream?

I am a grizzly bear in the depths of the earth, taking one last look at my forested wonderland before I fall into a deep, dark slumber, safe and sound in the rocky cave that encloses me into my bed of leaves. From the inside of my cave, the outside world looks like a painters palette with its brilliant array of colors and shapes. As I look before me, I see a changing world. As the leaves start to turn from green to red and orange, they dance a ballet of the season then fall to Mother Earth as their resting place, where they too will sleep until next spring. The castle wall of oak trees block my view of the trickling spring just ahead. Before the spring appears, mossy green rocks are trying not to drown in the breath taking view. I take one last look at this enchanting scenery and I pray that I will remember my beautiful vision in my dreams. This is copyrighted material. All rights are reserved.

Awesome recreation of the last sights the bears see before hibernating and recalling the "beautiful vision" in their dreams throughout the winter. Well done, Alisha! Love, carolyn
