# 1562 TPOS …. prompt: bear

wandering
mama bear near by
so much to do
daily visits seeking food
sent of wild flowers
.
note:
.
A friend had a big tree outside her window
where she looked out on the huge lawn to the river.
Mama bear, and some times cubs would come
sit in the tree and see could see them
up close and personal.
.
The tree was destroyed in a winter blizzard and actually crashed onto the roof … luckily a two story old farm house and the lady didn’t get hurt.
The damage to the house didn’t other her as much as missing seeing the Mama bear and cubs

photo: 1964 my mother at the reception of my first wedding.
I was wearing her pearls.

dancing to the radio
sang along one beat late
could eat just one chip
red red lipstick and nails
string of pearls with leather skirt

different winter than last year.
Dandelions still blooming and
other plants also confused by
the warmish weather.

Forty years ago, there would have just been
a husband and wife, and maybe toddlers
tonight there were for at least two families,
two full pews including great-grands
.
.
Christmas Eve
families return each year
generations grow
children now with their own
heart warming ~ loving
