Treasure Island

Andy Caldwell


Big Bear


outside dogs bark insistently
probably a critter out there
inside our dogs are painfully aware
such is life on the mountain
in a house near the city's edge
deer bear and bob cats live near
though a bit farther out of town
here and there is some gold
buried in the ground 
not too much left to be found
downtown bears are everywhere
carved with  chainsaws
as if shaped magically
from local trees....
Such is Big Bear as it
simple and beautiful
