The Bear Dances With A Red-Headed Girl On Snow By Starlight

Russian Photographer Katerina Plotnikova created some mind-blowing photos using real live animals.

They’re amazing and they reminded me of a poem I wrote a while, which I wanted to share again.

The Bear Dances With A Red-Headed Girl On Snow By Starlight

As his paw held her hand
the world looked on,
shame faced
by mockery of institution.

Feet became numb
in the treading white powder,
sweat glistened on her brow.
Instinct over riding eyes,
loyal to the bear.

Beyond the slavering jowls
she had to feel her part,
forsake hope of
what people perceived.

Now our red-headed heroine
fell in love with the stars
and the bear
that whirled her around.
