Hibernation: Taking time to rest and recharge during times of scarcity and challenge.
Why do many animals hibernate in the winter? Winter can be a time of scarce food and cold temperatures. This combination can take a toll on animals as they experience high energy outputs to stay warm and minimal opportunities for replenishment. Hibernation is a way to slow the heart and metabolic rate and lower the body temperature. A tried and true method of self-conservation.
Contemplating hibernation in a literal or metaphorical sense,
please share your poetry, photography, or flash fiction that reflects on times of rest and recharge.
What does hibernation mean to your creativity?
What are the ways creativity and nature come out of hibernation?
