Fox Facts and Dream Data #1

As we’re closing in on the lastdays to send in poems about foxes and/or dreams (deadline April 20th!), I thought I’d post some facts and tidbits about both prompts to hopefully inspire.

Fox Facts:

Dream Data:

    paused on open page
    brief shared story
    our courtship between
    breathe and summer breeze

    Whew..those are so much better than mine. I -really- need to work on my haiku. The tanka are ok, they have a bit more of an open theme…but haiku is a -lot- more focused, visual-wise, than I knew. 🙂
