The latest...

Running Fox...

1

And for a brief moment, the fox and I locked eyes.
And my heart danced...
...to a song deep inside.

My breathing hastened...
…creating its own fog.

The frame stood still...
…for what seemed like minutes.

And then he took off up the hill.
And as he reached the crest, he glanced over his shoulder.

To see if I would follow…

I followed that fox...
...to an unfamiliar place, yet it felt like home.

I stood and sucked in the air hard.
I could have stayed and made a life there...

...but as I searched the horizon for my new friend
He quickly scrambled into the valley below...

As if to say, not here.
Not yet.

And it took everything I had to leave that place behind...
