Pride of Lions

King of beasts
Collective pride
The cause the fall
But do not fall

Thick heavy mane
Vigorous roar
King of beasts
Collective pride

Cool tingle

Early, before the fog
has cleared, fingers
float at the side
of the canoe, seeking
the site where fish
are swimming
but all I get
is a shudder.

Sleuth Of Bears Go Down To River

Days of Summer filled the air.
Rivers sparkle water upon their surface.
A sleuth of bears wade where river current flow the fastest.
Their space was three paws wide across the river wide.
They waited in earnest for the river flow,
For coming up the stream, they would get their prize.
Their favorite dish they hope to catch, a salmon within their paws.
The sleuth of bears waited; hunkered down for they smelled them coming.
Then they saw with joy in their eyes; salmons jumping the river.
They swiped with their paws with lots of misses.
They swiped again and had great successes.
They used their mouths with disappointed.
Back to claw out of paws to catch their food.
They continue throughout the day.
Till right before the setting sun.
Out of river the sleuth of bears come.
They shake the fur dried and laugh of food they acquire.
Off they go their caves to sleep;
Their bellies full.
They still have few more days;
To feast along the river before salmon disappears.
Then they will get ready for long winter night.
Gathering nuts and berries; to stuff themselves.
But now the young sleuth of bears will enjoy their time together.
