GRIN AND BEAR IT

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 20, 2015, 10:20 AM
Skin by NorthBlue
Subject


So I woke up the other day and started gathering trash from around the house as it was 'Trash Day.'  I got all of the bags together and proceeded outdoors where the big trash can is.  I got about 40 ft away from the can when I realized something big was at the trash can.  It was dark, so I couldn't tell what it was a first, but once I did realize what it was my body went numb with fear.  At my trash can was a big Black Bear.  He looked at me, and I stared back in return.  I slowly tried to back up, and the Bear got up on his two back legs and made the most horrible guttural sound he could make.  I continued backing up until I reached my door, and I made my way back inside and locked the door.  I could hear the Bear stirring around my trash and getting whatever he could forage.  My wife told me to just stay inside and call and report the Bear sighting to the local authorities.  It took about 20 minutes, or so, for police and animal control to arrive.  The Bear had left my yard before they arrived, but it didn't take long for them to find him, as he was now in my next door neighbors trash.  The Bear was tranquilized, and I was told they were going to take him back up into the mountains where he belongs.  That is as close as I ever have been to a Bear, and hope that is the last time I see one in my yard.  
I have been in a Haiku mood lately, so expect to see a handful of them in the coming weeks.  Also I have been contemplating doing a collaboration or two.  
Finally, I would like to let everyone know that my health is improving more and more as time goes along.  My diabetes is under control, and I have been doing well mentally.  That is about it for now, and we will talk again soon... 

 My continued prayers to my friend Samira, Birgit, Dee, Chas, and Flori :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconparalyticprocess:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconparalyticprocess:

Daylight Savings TimeIt was not spring when you died
   though I wish it was.
In this grief I am selfish
    tossed upon the memory pyre
    but I was always the first
           at least, you told me so.
Shortest breaths follow our longest days,
              you said, smiling
              but we both knew this world was
                     too small
                     for the both of us.
You sighed, and became an echo on the horizon
       our destinies before us:
              I rise, youthful
                 in the east
              you set, eternal
                   
CrepitusYou would kill them, slowly.
       Every slug on the wet sidewalk, a silent victim
                  to your salt revolver
                  and I would say nothing.
I would never stand up to you,
  my voice cowering in its box.
Maybe I was terrified, a slug myself
             or maybe I liked to watch things die as well.
But that would make me a murderer
       and I don’t think I am ready.
Not yet.
                Not now.
So I took several quiet minutes to gather my voice from the cobwebs
    and when I opened my chapped lips to tell you
            you cut me off at the knees.
-D.E.M
MachinistYou fell on a grenade.
I tore through you like
  teeth through meat
             your resiliency
             pulsing and wet
  on a bone plate.
You had told me you did not want to go
       clinging to my breast, fearful
                      but I was not willing to entertain
                      the sum of your tears.
Eventually, my dear boy
                    death reaps everything we sow.
You had told me you did not want to go
       heaving
       but I was not meant to protect you
              forever.
-D.E.M
Daylight Savings TimeIt was not spring when you died

In this grief I am selfish

Shortest breaths follow our longest days,
              you said, smiling
              but we both knew this world was
                     too small
                     for the both of us.
You sighed, and became an echo on the horizon
