shadow tales of cedar


Goldi wander in wood?


Red Cedar by Emily Carr

beware of three bears

see them growling!


is Red in the hood?

big bad wolf out there

hear him howling!


scare Peter but good

should tinkle bells wear

stop them prowling!

    Goldilocks would be proud, Lynn. A nice Goldi, Red, and Peter trio.

    Ha, i love the voice in this. Here on the west coast, in the last few days, we have had a bear attack, another bear a woman scared off by yelling at him, and a cougar scared away by a woman blasting Metallica at it from her phone. True story. The critters are hungry and lacking habitat. My sympathies are with them… smiles. Thanks for writing to the prompt. I love your bear poem, spoken in a deep bear voice.

      I’m glad you like it, Sherry. I feel sorry for the animals too…unless I meet one in the woods. Scared off by Metallic…that’s great!
