“#ancestry ( a challenge)
The bear arrived fully formed, no knowledge of mother but thankful to be loved anyway. This seems to be for children who do not know their ancestors but with the enigmatic line “you came as an adult, a wise one.” Wide spaces between the lines for thought perhaps.”
we have been discussing his mother recently.
at a request from another.
‘who is my mother’. the bear whispered.
i do not know.
you came as an adult, a wise one.
you never said.
‘then i will never know?’
no, probably not, yet
i love you.
whispered the bear, then went very quiet.
