Supplying the Bear

So that is what it looks like to listen

to not only the piano keystrokes,

a feeling every sounds wavelength evokes,

my spirit sails, a voyage to christen.

Outside the snow has been falling for hours,

the echo of each snowflake, silenced, hushed,

still, after a week of being nursed

down from Olympus without our powers,

to supply the bear with warm chicken soup,

to watch the bear drift into rhythmic grooves,

to perform wild improvisations,

before the long sleep in this winter coop

where most the winter the bear hardly moves,

a last meal to avoid starvation.
