HAIKU

                fox's wedding.



note: When I was a kid my grandmother  never let me go out when rain and shine came together saying that , that was the time when foxes held their secret weddings.(a folk lore,which she believed in)....Years later I watched a similar concept   so well presented in  Akira Kurosawa themes..I miss my granny...Always did...

    An amazing Haiku, Mehnaz. The same story my mother told me. But it wasn't fox, it was jackal. Never mind the difference. The fact is most of us have heard this folk-tale from our ancesters. Thanks for your message congratulating me on the win of my poem Winter Be Gone in the Contest sponsored by Francine Roberts. Regards. -Mohammad

    M, this is a lovely haiku, it happens often in Canada that the sun shines when it is raining, it always seems so odd, I never heard that folklore before. well done, Constance
