dVerse Does Lai

A Bear’s Picnic

Our hike ended here.
Sun risen. Sky clear.
Twigs snapped
as we walked in fear
of grizzly bears near.
In fact
we could overhear
growls — oh dear,
bear tracks!



for dVerse Poets. Poetic form: Lai. aab/aab/aab/ a=5 syllables and b=2 syllables

  2. Careful of those bear tracks ~

  4. Yikes! Well written, but you went for my personal phobia. Sweaty palming through the poem. Let’s see… emotional response from the reader… yep, it’s effective!

  5. Fun, though a bit scary, Misky. We have had bears visit our West Reno neighborhood in the foothills during the drought. When development encroaches on their habitat, it’s to be expected.


    1. BTW. sorry to be late to visit. I was offline for a couple of days.So glad you shared.
