      BRIEF ENCOUNTERS

      With donations for
      The Purple Cat
      second hand store
      we take the opportunity
      for a little nature walk
      past the harbor south
      to the beach

      We detour around volunteer
      firefighters hosing off a wall
      Two harbor seals
      check us out
      with beautiful soulful eyes
      Two crows & a sea gull
      dispute ownership
      of a road kill pigeon

      We catch the orange line
      bus going home
      A large black dog
      runs across the road
      well in front of us
      but the face is wrong
      the gait & the body
      all wrong

      That was no dog
      but a black bear cub
      The driver stops
      the bus at the place
      where the bear
      entered the trees with
      such light footed power

      Being the only passengers
      we join in searching the area
      thoroughly with our eyes
      but seeing nothing
      we look some more
      "He's into the brush"
      the driver announces
      & drives on
