What do you see # 34 — Mother Bear

Mother Bear wandered these woods for a good hundred years. Her cubs were many and had populated the region, valleys and mountains, and beyond.

Mother Bear was tired. It was time for her to rest. One day in early fall, she fell asleep under a majestic beech tree surrounded by oak and did not wake up. By early December, her thick brown coat was layered with yellow and burnished chestnut red leaves.

Three Springs passed. On the fourth, mushrooms sprang from her resting place. Blue butterflies came from far and near to pay Mother Bear homage. She watches and smiles from her star that rises every morning with the sun.
