Spirit Animal

Spirit Animal

I am the fox, her spirit animal
An enchanting creature
With plenty of mystique 
I am faithful and loyal
And I will teach her
 
To not follow the pack
Be true to herself first
Be strong and mettlesome
Make wise decisions
And she will be well versed 

To be brave and fearless
Always thinking outside the box
Because she is special and
Sweet, one of a kind
She too is a beautiful fox

    This is special Christine, I love Spirit Animal symbolism. You used it well setting a gentle tone for the girl.

    Oh Christine, I love your poem and how used the fox as a spiritual symbol for the girl . Such an interesting piece I’ve got a fav’ song for you, Xavier Rudd’s classic tune, “Spirit Bird” I cry every time I hear this song.

    So I don’t want to be the party pooper here after all the poem was truly beautiful but the image clever but a tad scary. Too many video nasties growing up I guess, sorry.

      Yes, I agree. 😳 The photo conjured up all kind of thoughts for me too. Some were darker than others. It was a prompt photo so I went with something I thought would work. Thanks so much for reading 💕
