Lovely, Davy. It makes me think of the physical and personality traits that belong to families–not to mention the lands they walked upon. It’s all so mysterious and fascinating, I think.

Ah, the wily fox of words strikes again ! Can be a two edged sword, I think the same as Laura, mysterious. Our make-up is the result of many deep and tangled roots, not always good.

    Thank you Nigel (I see how you dodged the insertion of old between wily and fox). I think we all have dark shadows in our family history and DNA. I don’t know if I want to search and find mine.

You are a truly forensic poet, Davy. Must be something to do with your professional history.

This is really beautiful, both image and words — very clever and effective use of the haiku form to communicate so much with so little.
