Sasquatch hunting

Hunters chase legends of a giant creature,

Combing backwoods of the wild NorthWest,

Serving stories from the depths of nature.

Hunters track legends of a giant creature,

with thick matted hair on tall hard features,

Big footprints brace seekers’ quest.

Hunters chase legends of a giant creature,

Combing backwoods of the wild NorthWest.

I used the Secretkeeper’s Writing Prompt words in this poem: woods, legend, wild, hard, serveSasquatch, aka Bigfoot, is a North American legendary creature.  There have been sightings and reports over the years… When considering legends as a theme for this poem, I remembered  investigating Sasquatch stories as a child.  I must say that the statue in the photo is the friendliest Bigfoot image that I have ever seen.  If you do go Sasquatch hunting, their favourite foods are said to be bacon, chicken wings, donuts, berries, and apples.

  1. I have heard people swear the YETI is real, and Sasquatch looks city like Yeti. We also have similar creatures in aboriginal mythology and more recent descriptions in the blue Mountains.

  2. wonderful one. reminds of a time when i was present at Whatcom County Council meeting in northern Washington (i was doing a video project for public access tv back in the early 90s) when the council passed an ordinance making against the law in Whatcom County to shoot a Sasquatch. Seriously. 🙂

    1. Bigfoot is real as a longstanding legend at least– and possibly as a living creature, but it is hard to imagine that a creature so large could be so ‘invisible’. That’s what I think, but anything is possible…
