The Edge


The edge melted into ocean,
Who would cage ice in a frame.
Without knowing, and without sun.
How would we breathe air in water.
Alas! We were fish to climb the trees.
Or cows grazing near old ponds.

On the plight of polar bears of Arctic due to climate change.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

"The Edge", is a 1997 movie featuring Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin. Bart the Bear, a trained Bear known for appearances in several Hollywood movies, also appears in the film as a vicious grizzly; this was one of his last film roles. A nostalgic remembrance though.
