Two Sides of a Fox

Written for:  Sunday Muse #90


Blue-eyed side
holds my deepest
thoughts and musings.
I am wary. Who are
you? What do you want
with me?

Brown-eyed side
is trust I find
in you. I will
protect you if
you protect me.
We can be friends.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
