The Bear Swims

In by Chris on July 11, 2010 at 10:45 pm

Under a green sky the shaggy bear paced to the end of the ice field. The aurora borealis unfurled across the sky in banners that reflected in its lonely eyes. A warm wind blew from the south and tugged at the ancient white hair hanging in clumps from the bear’s stomach.

The bear slipped into the water, and the reflected messages of the sky rolled to the horizon in ripples. For a time it swam, each deliberate stroke lasting the length of the night’s slowly fading breaths. The dark movements of the ocean crept and swirled and dragged and welcomed.
