within winter's cold & deep, the sun is setting low.
hidden somewhere, a bear lightly sleeps,
her body full, aglow.
(zen-like patient, waiting for the thaw)
her mind's eye often wandering, to places beyond her den.
sleepwalking shapes of dreamed imaginings,
"One of the most celebrated hibernators is the American black bear (Ursus americanus). It can go for as long as 100 days without eating, drinking, urinating, defecating, or exercising."www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sa...ernation.html
"A slumbering bear has all it needs within. "
what do bears dream?
