The Bears of Spring – by Fred Whitehead


          as we were

                                                    reinterring kings

                                   the bears of spring        went

                        unnoticed    emerging

                            to sit on their haunches

                                    & raise their muzzles

                                         to the sky

                                           as our conflicts over finer points

                                            of collective evocation slowly

                                          mutated our sight

                 their eyes widened

                  to the wonderment


                                 quiet awakening

a seeing

                       as it should be
