As I travelled the road to work
along the country lanes
admiring the views
the sunshine and the rain
I saw in the distance
a fox by the side of the road
only me was there
no other traffic to be seen
as I drew closer
I felt compelled to stop
calmly, he sat, on the kerb
as I slowed
his yellow eyes looked
into mine
I searched for other traffic
but none could I find
by will he made me slow
and stopped is what I did
these eyes gazed into mine
and my heart slowed
he meandered
slowly across the road
reaching the other side
he stopped and stared
back at me
fox meets rainbow
holds the look
and as I travel on to work
I'll never forget that look......

Even a fox couldn't resist you.
Enjoyed the read.

He trusted you not to hurt him. You trusted him. No words exchanged. That's what trust is.

This is REALLY good! wo/man meets nature, and contemplates the other side of their existance. I love that line: "fox meets rainbow" it puts the picture in my head!
(One request. Please don't take it to heart, but please fix your spelling on Curb. It gives type "A" personality people like me strokes! -not that I've ever spelled a word incorrectly! If I don't miss my guess, it's probably a typo!)

Christopher, RG is British and "kerb" is the Brit word for "curb" ...

Love your poem......it's a message we should all learn from...sometimes, if we take the time to stop, we'll see something incredible, make a connection that will stay with us.. I'm sure the fox is posting a poem somewhere about his encounter with the beautiful rainbow that he saw!

Yes, trust is that and more...it's the unspoken handshake or in this case, one of sheer power through eyes meeting eyes and revealing all..:-))

HUSG

Christopher

This poem elicits a riddle - What do you get when you cross a fox with a rainbow? A Queen, of course.

I loved your lines,

he stopped and stared
back at me
fox meets rainbow

This is the very essence of you, m'Lady. So well done it hurts to think about writing after you.

smooch
