eight diagrams – bear

/still/
the sun shines
high in the sky
a butterfly
bright yellow
on soft pink petals
red and blue
dart amongst
the branches
the cold water
rushes past
white froth swirls
/still/
the wind sings
through the
chorus of sharp
green leaves
an orchestral
accompaniment
by the excess
inhabiting
the forest of
tranquility
/poisedtenseready/
a sudden surge
of wet slapping
cacophonous
as the sleek
soft maroon bodies
slowly fight
the currents
streaks of
unwavering instinct
a navy seeking
a triumphant
return to the
ancestral
spawning grounds
mindless need
/now/
the freedom of
launching out
of the constant
currents pushing
ever back
a blur of brown
ivory tipped
the claws of
death itself
snapping shut
the great return
cut short
as the foam
adopts a pink hue
she stands still
a belly full
of fatty meat
patiently waiting
the next parcel
of mindless
instinctual
self destruction
