For July's Haiku Theme: Foxes 🦊 https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/groups/haiku-pond/discussion/5068/ Kitsune - literally the Japanese word for fox, are intelligent foxes that possess paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser. According to yōkai folklore, all foxes have the ability to shapeshift into human form. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others as foxes in folklore often do other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, and lovers.
*The more tails a kitsune has they may have as many as nine the older, wiser, and more powerful it is.... Hence, The Fox of Nine Tails https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsune
