NaPoWriMo...Day Six

Pick an image from a personal collection or Google any word and look at the image results...

Like a grizzly bear
emerging form hibernation*
he comes from sleep
Hair mussed and eyes dead
scratchy stubble and
the same t-shirt
of yesterday
Until coffee, like a drug
wakens him, alert now

A grizzly could not
compete with caffeine.

*One animal that some famously consider a hibernator is the bear, although bears do not go into "true hibernation". During a bear's winter sleep state, the degree of metabolic depression is much less than that observed in smaller mammals. Many prefer to use the term "denning". The bear's body temperature remains relatively stable and it can be easily aroused.
