My Little Fox – The tentative approach of a lover

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” –  Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life of Water

I saw a little fox

come to the edge of the meadow
blooms framed her silhouette  

I watched that little fox
check the air with anticipation
her senses peeked about her

I sat still for the little fox
she was frightened by possibilities
mixed premonitions

I reached out my hand to the little fox
unexpectedly, incredibly she came
eyes bright and body alert

I picked up my little fox
she kissed my face and playfully expressed
her joy at my boldness
