Fox Buddy and Can You Catch My Flow




~*~
Lidy Wilks has a new release and blog tour giveaways.


Why Write Poetry?
My first published poem was in my junior high school yearbook.  I titled it “A Rose is a Lovely Flower.” And it’s true because a rose is a lovely flower. Plus it also stood for love. But the use of the rose in the poem was analogy for people.
A rose is a flower. Though we’re human, like the flower, we all have our own distinct personalities. That makes us different. And like how the red rose stands for love, yellow for friendship, we as individuals stand for something too. Whether to others, ourselves or our personal beliefs.
The rose and William Shakespeare opened up a new train of thought in my early teen years. Questions about why we’re so different when we’re all human. When we’re all the same. Questions begging to be answered.
Did I know I’d seek the answer in a poem? No, I did not. But somehow I knew, that though I wouldn’t come close, writing poetry would set me on the path to finding it. An answer that couldn’t be explained or understood with other opinions alone.
And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since. Writing poetry to search for answers.

Intelligent creatures with a LOT of charm.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It's amazing what we are capable of when we "adopt" a "pet." Beautiful.

Shady Del Knight said...

Hi, dear Sandra!

I never watch Fox and Friends, but I enjoyed watching Fox and Friend. :) It did my heart good to see that display of affection between man and fox and I thank you for sharing, dear friend!

Christine Rains said...

How wonderful! Thank you for the smile this morning. :)

Sandra Cox said...

They sure do, Val.
Hugs

CJ Kennedy said...

Awwwww. Now I want a fox.

Sandra Cox said...

UmHm. Actually, they domesticated much quicker than wolves in the studies that were done.

Sandra Cox said...

Well said, EC:)

Sandra Cox said...

Yes, indeed:)
How are you and Bleubeard today, Elizabeth?

Pat Hatt said...

Andrew said...

It is a pity foxes are such a terrible pest, here anyway, as they are quite cute.

Lidy said...

Never thought a fox can be so cute. Always thought they were, well, sly foxes. Watched way too many Disney movies growing up.
Thanks for having me on your blog today Sandra!

Lee said...

Writing poetry can be a salve to the soul...

Margaret D said...

I liked the video of the fox and man. We don't have foxes in Tasmania.

Birgit said...

Poetry is a deep expression of one's heart. I love the fox...always did and to see this just made my heart smile.

Safire said...

I find your comments on how we're all human very poignant. Why do people feel the need to be so divisive? I love poetry, as it usually stems from deep emotion in a single moment of inspiration and captures that rarity on paper, with words.

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Andrew,
They sure can be, but I find them fascinating little creatures.

Sandra Cox said...

My pleasure, Lidy:) Wishing you much success.

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed, Lee.

Sandra Cox said...

We have some in our area but never see them. We have many more coyotes.

Sandra Cox said...

You are definitely write about the poetry, Birgit.
I had the the same reaction to the fox:)

Sandra Cox said...

Well said, Steven.

Magic Love Crow said...

So cute!!! Awwwww!!!! Beautiful poetry!

Magic Love Crow said...

I enjoyed reading why she writes poetry!

Lidy said...

Well said. Poetry is the chicken soup for the soul.

Lidy said...

So true Birgit. Which is why poetry is therapeutic because it'll lead the writer unto a journey of introspection.

Lidy said...

Thank you Magic, :-D

Lidy said...

Thanks again Magic. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Lidy said...

Thank you Steven. Yes, often we let our differences keep us apart. Instead of recognizing our similarities and trying to open bridges of communication.
