For the Grizzled Mamas
A Mama Bear Grizzly writhes around in the scent
of her prey making sure she is fully doused
in a cloak of approachability for her attack.
How often do Mama Humans throw their
enemies off the scent and blend in
with the crowd?

summer catching wild salmon for her cubs.
How often are Mama Humans also their
children’s primary source of care and
Mama Bears need to eat throughout the day
to consume many thousands of calories to be
healthy, to be able to support growing embryos
within them during mating season, to survive.
How often are Mama Humans criticized
for the things they ingest that will aid in their
survival, aid in taking care of their children, aid
in their health and wellness?
Us, Mama Bears and Mama Humans got to go
beyond surviving so that our cubs and kids
can be thriving.
