The Bear


We haven't yet seen the bear, but we know she's been here..

the scat on the lawn; filled with blueberries

the black course fur she left in our neighbour's paddling pool;
the pool slightly crumpled - a new shape

the perogie bag roughly wrenched, stolen from the neighbour's patio fridge, door left hanging

the bag in tatters, shredded and holed - hangs, way too high on the fence post,

I stretched to reach it, laughed, one soggy perogie left..

she'll be back.

(This is a true story)


Prompt: Stretch

Again so much fun, thanks to Brian and Megan
of Theme Thursday for hosting!

  6. The time-laps camera would be a great idea, however we probably won't get to that this month :-) Maybe next year!

    No these are black bears, no pet eaters here.. coyotes and cougars, however, are another story.
