play dates

the fox and the farmer
wave from afar
send kisses and hugs
keep their hearts in a jar

like streams on a mountain
and waves on the beach
the lay of the land
keeps them just out of reach

one basks in the sun
the other chills in the snow
with the distance between them
they can’t help but go slow

so the fox and the farmer
create new ways to play
social media games
for twenty-one days

pictures and poems
skip over the net —
in virtual worlds,
that’s as close as you get!
