2015 – Let the Year Begin

Outside the kitchen window
a trespassing cat
behaves nervously.
A dog fox,
large, healthy, and red,
trots past.
Aloof. Athletic.
Hurdler, it clears the garden fence.
I watch it all.
Behind me, the porridge
boils over.

Many thanks to group member Patrick Prinsloo for sending in this in. It’s not quite a haiku but very evocative in the same way nonetheless.
