The Book Cover

It's a flimsy structure
standing in the shallows of the sea
green against greens and gold
A polar bear
sits on the edge
legs dangling

It's just the cover of a book,
but the simple art
has a kind of force

I'm on the edge of my chair
glancing back
now and again
at the bear
the structure of green
its reflection of green
on the motionless sea.

(regarding the hardcover book
The Island
by Marije Tolman & Ronald Tolman
