Sitting, dozing as through the open
Window comes the gorgeous aroma of
Grass, trees and the countryside.
Yes, life can be tough, at times it can
Be darn near unbearable, but some
Things are just made to be savoured.
A warm, summer’s night when I can
See a beautiful, sleek fox sauntering
Through my garden, without a care
In the world, even though it has set off
The motion sensor lighting which
Has caught my attention is definitely
One of them.
The fox wanders out of my view,
I turn away from the window and
Light a cigarette. Somehow the sheer
Beauty and bravery of the fox has
Lifted this night out of the ordinary.
