  1. Melissa says:

    the edge of the woods when the streetlight

  2. angie werren says:

    before I decide trot
    or kitsune the streelight
    shines on all the tiny
    children still counting red
    rover red mother may I

  3. wildlife crossing—
    this moment when the hidden
    steps into the light

  4. Moonsinging says:

    young fox watch
    under the streetlight
    no footprints

  5. Chrissi says:

    right here
    stranded with the naked truth
    the moonlight
    whisks me closer
    to a distant dream

  6. As I type in the mornings, I watch the light change over Lake Michigan. There are icebergs and rose along the horizon. On Sunday, a wounded fox came to a sunny spot in our yard, to rest and heal. I am honored we were a safe place.

    * This is from a longer post from my blog, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin (January 2010). A good writing exercise to make it this short.

    Thank you, Ellen

    empty highway…
    a fox’s eyes
    my headlights

    • polona says:

      funny… i believe you wrote this by yourself but here’s mine from december 2006 shiki kukai:

      starry night
      the fox’s eyes
      in the headlights

      • Peggy Bilbro says:

        Proof of the universality of a good haiku!

      • Shloka Shankar says:

        Polona, wow! Talk about deja-ku 🙂 I guess the only difference here is, I’ve tried to convey the fox’s eyes standing in for headlights, and not really the reflection aspect. 🙂

        • sanjuktaa says:

          Yes, Shloka…I did notice that small but significant difference (with Polona’s).In fact, when I first looked at this doodle, more or less the same lines had occurred to me too 🙂

        • polona says:

          ah, yes. missed this aspect on first reading (i guess i was stunned by the similarity) but it has become obvious now you mention it 🙂

  8. Adam Traynor says:

    red dawn a broken line out of the fog

  9. a walk in haiku says:

    the space
    between breaths …
    I roam

  10. sanjuktaa says:

    stretching
    from one fear
    to another
    the long shadow
    of a streetlight

  11. sanjuktaa says:

    on a road named fear the red fox

  12. Anitha Varma says:

    lonely road…
    out of the gloom
    a red fox

  13. Peggy Bilbro says:

    (Two for today)

    step by step
    emerging from the dark
    down the road
    or back to the woods

    a tangle of branches
    holds my shadow
    wait

  14. Maria Santomauro says:

    under the lamp
    smart as a fox-
    success

  15. Fell asleep last night before posting…

    the long drive
    home from you
    in my red dress–
    how quickly my passion fades
    under these passing streetlights

    *

    last night’s fox dreams–
    another reason
    to wash away
    the ink stains
    of you

  16. sanjuktaa says:

    Love the second one, Kathy!

  17. whimsygizmo says:

    Everything’s illuminated –
    your sly heart, my red
    rage. Even the trees
    reach for what I thought
    was mine.

  18. polona says:

    night snow
    a fox reappears
    in my dream

  19. under the lamp
    no road in sight
    the red fox waits

  20. Debbie says:

    He hesitates and
    sees a smooth easier path
    thinking, “perhaps trap.”

  21. the street lights’ scintillating wit and wisdom

  22. Rita Odeh says:

    hunger moon-
    a fox steps into
    the light

  23. Rita Odeh says:

    full moon . . .
    a fox sidestepping
    the light

  24. flame
    beneath the lamppost
    I slow for a look

  25. Lucas Stensland says:

    making eye contact
    with the fox for a second
    dead of night

  26. Katie Bock says:

    I cross no such roads

  27. fox tales into the dark
