(g) Mick’s SFC #2 / InvITation (9.25)

invITation
(pi ku, tau ku, haiku, Septolet, Shadorma)

there, something –
‘it’
lurks in shadow
~
moon casts silver on ‘it’ –
red fox
sniffing the night air for rodents
~
While little kits rest
Vixens from the same skulk hunt
‘It’ is their duty
~
Where has the
Reynard gone?

‘It’ goes to
The village
Becoming a
Familiar spirit
~
Seasonal
Changes envelope
‘It’…the mood
Emotions
Looking and longing for more
Or less of magic…

“it”

Male foxes are known as dogs, tods or reynards, females as vixens, and young as cubs, pups, or kits. A group of foxes is referred to as a skulk, leash, or earth.

The Emerald Swallowtail is a very beautiful butterfly. The shimmering emerald color that often literally sparkles on the wings of this butterfly are simply stunning. When the light shines on the wings just right, you can see the emerald color sparkling like jewels. The Emerald Swallowtail goes by some other names, like Papilo palinurus, Burmese Banded Peacock, Moss Peacock, Green Moss Peacock and Princeps palinurus.

The Banded Peacock is a South Asian native, seen mostly throughout parts of India, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan. The lime green and dark black colors easily distinguish them from other species.
