Polar Bear


Bleak black fur

Glazed with ice

A slice of the sunlit moon


Strolling iceberg

Over sea of ice

Eyeing seal dives


Dancing the night away

Under bickering auroral hues

Flashing across stellar skies


Melting seas of snow

Submerge snowscapes

Burying bears in snow


Bereft of the thawing Tundra

Stranded on a tropical isle

You wouldn't know a polar bear from a black bear!

  • Comment from author about the poem: It's International Polar Bear day today and it's high time that we realize the need to conserve these beautiful beings by protecting their natural habitat. Interestingly, polar bears are born with black fur that looks white as it reflects the snowy white landscapes that they inhabit. In this poem towards the end I've imagined how dark the polar bear would look if it was found in the tropics ,away from its snow-filled abode.

    Given the trajectory the climate is on, the only polar bears alive will be in zoos .... I admire your concern given India is about as far away from the arctic as it is possible to be.

    Thanks for the reminder.
