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:

In Japan, fox spirits are known as kitsune. A little excerpt from Wikipedia [read more here]:

“Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. Foremost among these is the ability to assume human form. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others—as foxes in folklore often do—other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives.”

Dream Data:

Pamela A. Babusci was kind enough to share with me this interesting video from YouTube about dreams:

    from my hammock everything buzzes — hazy

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

    a kitsune’s graveyard tryst, to gnaw a bone with a gaki – the wind flutes through the bones, so many to choose.

    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. 🙂
