Path of the Fox

Through the Trees


Sometimes a favorite hike opens a passage you hadn’t noticed before.

The familiar becomes new and wondrous.

These two trees approached at the right angel reveal a passageway to another world.

The light reveals a shaman’s staff

A pair of fox appear as if from the stars

In Native American wisdom the Fox symbolizes camouflage.



Where are you?

            Under the ferns?

                        Becoming the forest,

                                    So I can learn?

Are you watching?

            Invisible to me?

                        Trying to teach me,

                                    To become a tree?
