Day 19 — Oct WriPoMo — A Mother’s Dream

vixen with kitsimage link

With black furry paws

and retractable claws

a vixen fashioned a place

of twigs and fur

beneath two rocks,

a warm and protected space.

 

A vixen’s curled

in her cozy den

when the bays of the hounds

come close again.

 

She snuggles her kits close

and shivers, not with cold.

She licks them with her rough tongue

and dreams each will grow old.
