haiku

New Year revellers -
the urban fox pokes its head
through the garden gate.

for a river of stones

That is quite something you've got there. I like the contrasting scenes...

Happy New Year!

the image of the urban foxes reminds me of the ones I used to see in the wooded section of campus in the evenings as I was driving home.

Love your haiku--it's a great celebration of the new year! I'm looking forward to seeing what my first bird of the new year will be tomorrow morning. Your fox peeking through the gate is a wonderful image.

We saw a fat furry fox on San Juan Island. There are signs - "A fed fox is a dead fox" It took me awhile to "get" it! They are pretty fearless.

My fox hasn't been around for a bit! I love this haiku. Hope your new year is great. I am going out to see the stars

.... and I hope the fox got lots of left-overs to eat. :O) Nice haiku.

I really like this because I can see it happening. It has a 'Wind In The Willows' feel to it. The fox is wondering what all the hullabaloo is about. Very nice. Happy New Year to you. I am looking forward to reading more of your wonderful writing!

Good haiku Juliet, No sign of foxes for me last night - Hullaballoo must have scared them off.

Have an excellent New Year.
