Foxes (haiku)

Flaming red tails and
big ears are all you glimpse as
they leap through bushes.

    This is great but you should make almost a sentence before going down a line like instead of flaming red tails, and... mabey Flaming hot red tails... Otherwise this is a great and neat poem. I like it.

    How could I miss any kind of poem on foxes?! Love when you post forms here, and this certainly made me smile. My sister adores foxes and follows news/updates from this rescue (SaveAFox) here in the United States that takes in foxes from fur farms or from breeders. They have a lot of videos on Youtube too, Finnegan the Fox is kind of a celebrity haha.

    My only suggestion, that sort of aligns with Mr. Darcy's comment, is maybe being a bit more daring with the title, or having fun with it and playing around with ideas to go beyond "foxes", and having it be a clever tie in to the content. The title works fine though, as the haiku gives me that feeling of having a perfect moment in nature, although fleeting.

    Hope you're doing well :)

      Haha, I love foxes as well! Taking in foxes I've always though Is a wonderful thing to do. I agree entirely. It was a prompt I was given to write a poem about by my brother, and I decided basically just to stick to the prompt, haha. Thank you for your lovely comment!
