Thank you Sherry Heim for the photo!;-)

I look at this picture in awe of our
great Creator and all His creation!

Oh such loving tenderness shown
Between cub and momma bear
The lessons that must be learned
Much the same as humans hear

But one thing is for certain
Something we all should learn
White cub and black mother
Have no problem with color

A look at how our animal friends
Live by natural laws of nature
Having no leader to direct them
Yet they abide by heredities guide

For the most part they do not war
Living in peace sharing the land
Instinctively knowing their own role
All drink from same watering hole

Yes, there is a lesson for humanity to learn here. Now, the challenge is to teach...

Black mother and with a white cub, now this is something to behold. never seen one like this before. and if you should happen to see the cub alone one day, get your ass outta there...momma ain't very far away.

I absolutely have just fallen in love with that picture. Getting a picture of a young spirit bear and its mother is just so amazing, breath taking. The poem is magnificent. I think that people and animals should live together like that instead of people slaughtering them because they don't want to share or are just to greedy and self centered to even begin to think that animals have a place in the world.

"All drink from the same watering hole."

How can we civilized members of mankind see the wonder in God's creations and yet be so blind?

Simple words projecting profound observations.
Well done, indeed!

Lovely piece Eileen
Nature is nature
Not to be confused with humanity
Most enjoyable reading

Love & Peace

You are right, Eileen. Animals (nature) can teach us a great deal if we are willing to watch (listen). Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Ah, such harmony and balance in nature... Everyone knowing "their place" in the grand scheme of things, and being content with that. I often look at Willow and admire the fact that she knows nothing of pride or humiliation. You and I are definitely on the same page today. It's a shame that us people have such high horses to become unsaddled from... Orwell's Animal Farm rings ever truer... Neat tie of words and picture. TY Kate xx

I believe the Creator did put us all here on the earth to learn from one another regardless of our species.

Thank you for the beauty that both of your presentations offer.
Have a blessed day of peace and prospertiy Eileen.

That is an unusual combination in the black bear populace...when I was young we hunted these poor beasts, I wish I could forgive myself for hurting even one...but know I killed many...still a cute picture & a wonderful idea for the content of this poem...Ed & Rufuz
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 2/7/2007
I am so glad you used this picture to write such a wonderful poem with a most important message, Eileen. Animals don't seem to care about color, breed or even about disabilities. It seems to me, that they know the value of life and just keep moving in a forward motion. I know that many say that animals don't get to go to the same place that we do in the afterlife, but I don't happen to believe that. I think that we all go to the same place and that the animals teach us truth and honesty as well as unconditional love and strength to endure all that is placed upon us. In many ways, the animals are far more evolved than we are. Love is love, be it bear to bear, person to person or bear to person. All that inhabit this planet share so much more than we spend much time thinking about. Thank you for this excellent write, Girlfriend. You did a great job.
Take care,

Ooh this one is great and perfect timing...for February is black history month and you've captured the meaning of living in unity and harmony with each other, not matter the color of our skin through yet another of God's creations...a beast whom many fear, yet she is gentle enough to love and accept a cub a complete opposite of herself. Very inspiring write my friend, enjoyed this very much a keeper!
