“The early bird gets the worm, and the early fox gets the bird.” 

― Matshona Dhliwayo

Wait until sweet morning dew 
dries upon green velvet grass 
delight in simple pleasures 
a feather found, rich treasure 
Saunter with stealth and grace 
through mottled forest glen 
leave no visible trace
of where you’re going
or where you’ve been

  1. A feather IS rich treasure, especially for baby foxes. He must feel proud to have made such a score. This reminds me of the time when I was gifted an eagle feather in a most amazing way.

  2. I like to think that sweet baby fox just found the feather and not the bird!! I know, I know, nature has its pecking order, but I just like to think they could be friends!!
