Fox sat on the fence,

Reluctant to jump and run through one field or the other.

Afraid to forgo

The mouse in the patch

That he’d never have time to explore.

Crow flew on by with a wink and a grin and a crackling cry to his fellow,

“Fox, poor old Fox, don’t hesitate thus,

The moments, you know, are so fleeting.

Your passion will wilt,

There on the rail,

For your want of the courage to leap.

Swat doubts clear away from the choices that sway

Temptingly close to your muzzle,

And, pray, pick one field or the other.”

Linda Gribko is an author, artist, and photographer living in Morgantown, West Virginia. She's known for her wildflower photography and the mandalas that she creates from her nature photos. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016. It's the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
