My Bear's asleep
He's all tucked in
A blankie pulled
Under his chin

The miles between
His bed and mine
Two thousand plus
A giant line

I miss his warm breath
Sweetly scented,
Fine long hair
With softness hinted

Bear and Raven
Intertwined
Hurry home
I miss you, mine

The miles between his bed and mine, you are the most poetic Raven I have ever met, your singing is sweet.

And it's so sad.

Tom & Icy said...

The saddest sound is no sound at all from the one you love.

Very nice indeed. And thanks for visiting my blog. My obsession with Iceland is a niche topic but I knew I'd bump into other folks that understand my dreams. Takk fyrir!

Ariel - Thank you - and pray tell how many have you met? :) All ravens are poetic - it is their nature although this is not widely known.

Tom and Icy - Sad but yet not sad as I look forward to his homecoming.

Yes, that must be the saddest sound of all... silence from your loved one. You are wise.

Not-so-Annonymous: Such the early riser. Your grin is contagious.

*see the Raven grin* xo

EBEZP: = love is beautiful, isn't it :)

Miz Nix: Hello and welcome from across that big ole pond. You have a nice "family".

Vikingsson: Obsession understood! there is no help for it... it just keeps getting bigger. I'm afraid for you... once you actually set foot on the Land - you might not return. It surpasses anything and everything you've ever heard or seen in pictures. You have a great website by the way. Yes indeed - on with the butter!

So sweet. I love it.

Nothing lonlier than an empty bed when your best friend is away.
Beautifully written, it expresses the feeling perfectly.

Mo'a said...

Awwwww!!! you have such a way with words. I gather that he is not in Iceland that would be 6000 miles away...that would be just too much to take.

Jamie Dawn said...

That is SO tender & precious!!!
His response is toooo wonderful!!!!!
Who knew ravens & bears were so compatible??
There's lots of love ooozing from this post!

SOe said...

I like this post very much.

actonbell said...

Aw, that's fantastic and cuddly:)

jillie said...

Those is so very well done Terry. It makes me miss him and I don't even know him.

Hope you had a great wknd ;o)

Keshi said...

aww cute one. Hope he'll be back in ur amrs real soon!

Keshi.

tsduff said...

tlp: :) It is simply the truth.

Annonymous: Yes - everything helps. Thinking about his deep beary snoring will help me fall asleep.

TC - Pretty wise for a cat. My best friend's absence is like having cookies with no milk, peanut butter without any jam, or a banana without a peel.

Mo'a - LOL. It WOULD be too much to take - not only his heartfelt absence, but the knowledge that he was in The Land would be un Bearable!

Jamie Dawn:
His response was just a peep into how enormous his heart it. I'm a lucky bird in so many ways, but mostly because this Bear loves me. :)

SOe - reminds me of you and your hubby :)

Actonbell - That Bear cuddles like no other.

Jillie - When he travels, I'm only half here. But I know he'll be back.

tsduff said...

Hey Keshi - We're never too far apart, even though the distance between us is great. (we share that connection whereever we are...) But, it IS so much better to be in his arms :-D

Minka said...

I want that, too! Almost exactly like you sang it.

I am grinning, too!

tsduff said...

Minka - :)

I know they have ravens in Iceland, but you know, the last polar bear was away back when the ice froze up by Husavik somewhere... a long time ago. Not enough berries up there for a bear.

That is just magical Terry. Love it.
