Day 292 –Exquisite Tastes — Haibun Journey View From My Window

As we are driving home today, I look out my window and see a sign, which states in large letters Exquisite jewelry. There were no diamonds or other jewels picture on the sign. I could not figure out what the fox and crow on the sign had to do. It reminds me of the Aesop fable of the “fox and the crow” whose moral is don’t trust flatters.

the hungry fox prows
father crow raising the alarm
sending animals scurrying
