Infinite Mysteries
By John Cannon

Walking at dusk,
for one brief moment
the faintest whiff of musk
teases my nostrils,

I know this place
on the trail
and have sensed
this musk before,

Itís the ephemeral scent
of a red fox;

Not at all as heavy
as most animal smells,
it barely touches
your awareness,

Like other fox traits,
itís so delicate
and fleeting
it seems almost mystical;

Did I really smell it?
was she really here?
or is this magical animal
a mirage?

An elaborate illusion
created by Mother Nature
to remind me
of her infinite mysteries.
