Poem #52: “Plight of the Polar Bear”

It’s been awhile since I gave a writing update, but I haven’t had any reason to do so. Now that the Fall semester has come to a close, I’ll have some time to do some writing. I started by writing some poetry, and I plan to work my way back into I Will Be King before too long. I’ll start by proofreading / revising what I’ve already written, which should help me get focused on it, and then start working on some new scenes. In the meantime, here’s one of the poems I wrote the other day:

Plight of the Polar Bear

The polar bear evolved
.     for fields of ice and snow,
And there it has survived
.     for centuries untold;

But now that ice is melting
.     and the snow has turned to slush;
No longer does its snow-white pelt
.     conceal it in the brush;

Will they die off quickly
.     like so many species have?
Or will they linger long enough
.     to once again adapt?
