With my fishing pole in hand, ready to land a few Coho Salmon in the great Salmon River Upstate New York. I witnessed this remarkable scene of a mother bear walking out of the river with a fish in her mouth and bringing it to her cubs. I never did fish that part of the river that day. But It was worth the give up. 

~ Wet pawprints trail across the rocks ~ 
                                 ~ Peeking through the thicket ~                   
                               ~ Watching ~ With hungry eyes ~ 
                                      ~ Suspicious triplets ~ 
                               ~ The mornings mist ~ Still drifting ~ 
                                    ~ Across the Salmon River ~  
                                        ~ With her belly full ~ 
                                       ~ Breakfast is served ~

I could pretty much see and hear everything, I could just about feel the water. A brief one that took me right to the scene so easily, very well written.
