Philosophical

Philosophical

At midday I notice a fox
           sitting Buddha-like
on the shed roof
           motionless

from its vantage point
           it appears to be lost
in thought
           as it stares out into space

with its fine thick well-fed fur
           it looks a picture of health
and seems not to have
           a care in the world

a white cat with
           black patches
enters its field of vision
           but the fox does not stir
a philosophical fox
           that lives and lets live
