Vanity

In silent white
The skies draped –
The shimmering, gliding
The majestic, lofty –
Ensconced, entwined lived
The indigenous

Eerie now –
The skies open
Revealing the reality –
The shattered shards
Pierce the frail
Indigenous

(The shocking image of the starving polar bear was shot by photographer Kerstin Langenberger off the Barents Sea on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard.)
