Young fox out early,
sees last night’s smells with her nose:
tracks, traces, imprints.
Young man out early,
slumps home, his senses awry,
outfoxed by vodka.
I enjoyed this 🙂

Thank you, and my pleasure 🙂
Sarah, your poem is absolutely hilarious 🙂
Glad to see the fox, you are so lucky to be able to take all these pictures.
Hee, hee. Glad you appreciated my sense of humour here:-) yes, I’m very lucky, Inese, to be able to take these pictures, although will always regret not capturing one of an albino squirrel with ruby-red eyes that visited my garden a few years ago. Aparently they are extremely rare.

I have only seen an albino jackdaw once. Ah, and an albino tiger. Hope you will see that squirrel again.
Wow, an albino jackdaw and an albino tiger! I’d love to have seen both of those. Lucky you 🙂
The tiger was in Vegas 😉
They say there’s no end to what you can find in Vegas. I can imagine an albino tiger is the sort of pet that a wealthy casino owner would have, both to show off and to keep his clientele in order! I see a James Bond movie coming on…
I think it was in Mirage, years ago. Had to pay to see him 🙂
Oh Sarah you’ve outdone yourself here! Love it. (And foxes are my spirit animals so extra points for my favorite canid!)
I’m so glad you loved my haiku duo today, Sunshine! That dear little fox was the first thing I saw out of my window today, when I opened the curtains. It was next door, having a really good sniff of every inch of the garden and not minding me photographing it at all. Even glanced up at me a few times, without showing an ounce of fear.
A most entertaining duo, Sarah. Love the fox image. 🙂
Thank you, Sylvia. I’m glad you love the image:-) I think it’s my best fox picture yet, as the suject was very calm and unafraid of me.
