A stunning surprize on a winter day.

A Winter Gift


A flash of russet red fur

On the snow covered hill

Catches my eye

The fox pauses in mid-stride

In a photo-op perfect pose

Saucily glancing over its

Shoulder at me

Whiskers glisten with

Ice crystals of diamond like

Radiance in the sun

For a moment I am blinded

As the light splinters into

Flashes of pure blue white

Until he turns away

Then like a surprise gift

Hidden in the wrapping

At the bottom of the box

His mate joins him

From the den

Camouflaged by

Fallen leaves

In no hurry

And in the perfect stillness

Of the day

They trot across the ridge

Beyond the tree line

And out of view
