A Shared Moment

On an otherwise
foggy dim day
there she stood –
in her brilliant red
winter coat
meeting my gaze
head up
alert but not frightened
and knowing the dog
was tethered on a leash.

As soon as I looked away
she went about her daily living
so light on her feet
scampering off
and yet
for that one shared moment
eye to eye
we were kin –
the red fox
and me.
