winter tale - Ice Bear + amazing pics !

In the beginning of time people and animals lived together on the earth and there was no difference between them. Bear, human, raven, fox, even snow and ice, all had spirit, all had soul. The air was pure and clear as crystal. Words held a magic. A word spoken in a chance, a wish or a whisper would hold a magic that would shape the world.

Into this world they were born, in the dark months, when the cold and the wind turned water to stone. So small. She held them close to keep them warm in the blue ice cave that was their world.

But Raven tricked her. She stole away one child, carried him high into the darkness of winter, over the frozen sea. The bear wept when she found that her cub had gone. Her ice tears formed scars on her cheeks. She held her one child safer and closer and waited for the sun to rise.

But she never forgot.


“...her ice tears formed scars on her cheeks...” ISN īT IT BEAUTIFUL?!
Isnīt English beautiful?!? THIS IS FOR Ljuba from Russia!!!

Honestly, I think it īs more for a man rather than for Ljuba since the scars make a man a man :)... in other words, more attractive;)

Yes. Words can paint such beautiful emotion filled pictures.

Oh Maple, I love your sense of humour!
I pointed at the style of writing and the melody of that sentence... not the real meaning... BTW: in your eyes, is the mother bear still beautiful despite of her scars? :-)
We all have scars, some are visible, some are invisible...
Sorry to take up the space on the forum but I had to share this book with you.
I love legends, I am fond of bears, I love watercolours and I am keen on listening to the writers reading their own books...
