The Fox


Sighting of a Fox on the beach
The presence of our ancestors falls
upon our waking spirits
While we talk about reincarnation
While we speak of our visions
While we wash away chocolate-
covered-almonds
With Pinot Noir

& How I adore you
As the rain falls
& Tickles our cheeks-
Rain dance - I pick you up -
your legs Around my waist -

scents of you
running up my nostrils -
so distinct - overcoming
The smell of the shore -
one kiss
two kiss
three kiss
four

next kiss somehow better than before -

We follow our ancestors'
footsteps' in the sand -
until we make our own -
only to find them retraced by
our Great - Great - grandkids everlasting -

the Fox features diamond eyes
cutting sharply into the night -
We evaporate & our spirits
glide like zephyrs past everything
we ever were
& into everything we'll ever be-

    You've left me speechless. I only wish I could write like this. You've managed to grab hold of all those wonderful feelings I always have trouble describing. Did I say, speechless..? Yeah. (Report) Reply

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
