These beautiful bears greeted us as we travelled down the Atlin Road last week. To paraphrase my fellow blogger Rob-Bear, if elves can have haiku, then why not bears?
Here is my challenge to you: craft a bear haiku, and post it in the comments. Other styles of bear poetry are welcome, too. No rush-- I'll leave the challenge open until July 1.
I'll compile all the bear poetry and send a small bear-gift to two participants: a randomly drawn name, and the author of my very favourite bear poem (the latter being completely subject to my personal taste, and the skill with which you have evoked the bear's spirit for me).
