I just love this great post. Yes the bear is a great metaphor, a symbol of hunger and fierce determination. We will all need this symbol to succeed in negotiating and overcoming its depths and overcoming its pitfalls, beautifully written Dolly, blessings Roy

The original sushi but with no plastic wrapper or trash to discard. Our Florida black bears like sugar. They broke into my brother's porch and raided the freezer. The female ate an entire bag of M&Ms and left. Sending you my best today as always,
Sal XOs....

We have lots of these creatures up north and around our area....fish is definitely their tasty food. But they also like to rob the garbage can, if they can. If I met a grizzly bear, I probably would holler for help and that would interrupt his lunch!

This is really skillfully-written and descriptive. It paints a powerful scene in nature of a hungry animal sustaining its life, guided by its God-given instincts.

Nature, red in tooth and claw, where only the fittest survive, so he has to feast as best he can. We can't tell what he's eating but it is clearly something lower down the food chain.

Hello Dolly, you don't just write poetry, you invent new forms - a Pinned Decimal, your latest is very good. I like the form and I like what you write.
Two stanzas and the couplet that ties the two together. It is very good. Warm regards Dorothy xx

Hi Dolly, Great picture of a hungry bear. I'm glad he got to eat something good, looks like he really enjoyed it. I can just feel the cold water that he dipped into in his search for food, I liked the rhyme and rhythm of this poem too. Love, Donna x

I like both the title (the Hungry Bear) and the poem.

This poem reminds me of the poor country where the children are so thin because they do not have enough food to eat.

We are lucky, we can always find food.
