tragic spring haiku de printemps – polar bear = ours polaire

polar bear
slipping off an ice floe ...
her cubs drowned


ours polaire
glissant d’une banquise ...
ses oursons noyés

    1. Thank you so much, Rita! This is truly a tragic haiku, but sadly, all too true. Polar bears are dying off in the north of Canada, because there is little food left for them and sometimes they are caught on tiny ice floes. Horrible!
