Peaceful Offering.


In the foggy mist, old man winter
wrapped warm in his snow blanket
Awaited the arrival of a friend,
to share his wealth of crystal information,
so delicate, intrinsic, and hypnotic to the eye.
He had so much to offer on
so peaceful of a moonlit night

Along trudged a bobbing bear covered in his diamonds
Followed by a prickly haired husky baring teeth of war.
A hunter stood behind them with bow and rifle raised
In the silent foggy mist
Of old man winters' home.

The bear rose his paws, up into full alert
A throaty roar pierced the calm
While the dog crouched down to fight.
With fangs, he growled and drooled to catch the big bear blows.
The hunter stood stead fast
with his mighty bow

After a bloody battle
The diamonds turned to red.
The bear lay in the blanket
Old man winter made
The Husky sniffed the carcass
The Hunter smiled a smile
A peaceful gift, an offering,
Old man winter got to hold.

In the silent foggy mist
A wealth of crystals shine
On the trees and bushes and the creatures of the night
Old man winter keeps them warm
In the powdery snow
No one fears him like the hunters
Preying on the living, in the blue white snow.

Hi A Lady's Life - wonderful evocative words - and gosh it does look like that in Siberia and Eastern Europe now ... humans are suffering - but the birds out here are struggling too ...

Loved the poem .. cheers Hilary

hilary around my place they always find something to eat.The animals which find it hard are the bears and cougars which come closer and closer into man territory, Even in summer .
Of course birds know better than to stay where there is no food.They fly south.

Thank you blue shell.

Just be careful what you say about us Bears. My ancestors were there long before your ancestors. Gimmie a break, already!

Rob I love bears. My ancestors too are bear people lol
A lot of respect for bears and all nature for that matter. If they were not wild I'd probably have one as a pet.
