bear in the woods.

Standard

ran into this guy 

when out walking 

 frozen in place

i tried to remember

what to do 

if i ever was

to meet a bear in the woods

run, play dead, make myself large, make noise

 or

take a picture

leave it in the trees

for the child who left it behind

now, missing it.

 

“he looked all alone

and so sad and so blue,

so I said, “oh, dear bear;

there’s a home here for you.”
