the Marten and the Fox

marten 001 - small

Standoff.
The marten slinks through the grass
It smiles with the weeds
Its blonde markings shimmer
Like corn in the mud
On its blackened back.

Standoff.
The fox crouches by a heap of stones
It bows to the wind
And its frosted fur rises
With the light of the sun
In the east.
