The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Updated on December 3, 2013

Where does our incentive to write come from??

  • from a moment in life
  • from a song
  • from mother nature's beauty
  • from the happy sounds of little ones
  • from sadness
  • from grief
  • from love
  • and so on
  • and so on
  • and so on!!!

Today's incentive which lead me to compose this hub came by in a very strange way!! It originated from a remark on the radio about an hour ago:-

'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' is a sentence which contains all the letters of our English alphabet.

After getting some household chores over and done with I sat down here not knowing what to write; so I just allowed my mind and imagination to unravel of their own accord and here's the result:-

I hope you enjoy.


Acrostic: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Tormented her heartbeat

her nerves a-taut

each movement defined


Quick each footstep

united her senses

in nervous and survival mode

creature of the world

killing her a travesty.


Breaths a-laboured

rich her brown hues

oh dear brown fox

where will you go

not born to such persecution.


Fox cubs to raise

over she jumps

xcellent instincts


Just in time

upheld and courageous

motherly instincts

pretty amazing

such a worthy achievement.


Oh how wondrous

victorious and embraced by Mother Nature.

each foxhound 's defeat

repeats the fox's triumph.


To leap for her life

her motherly instincts embrace

each nerve taut.


Lessen the killing

a deep respect

zest for freedom

your heart is true.


Dear moments

of contemplation

give each life a chance.


Haiku: Each life so precious

Each life so precious

Each baby nestled in love

Each mother's true love.


Rictameter: Let's Stop.

Let's stop

Cruel killings

I cringe in bleak recoil

Each bloodbath unnecessary

Humanity's image a travesty

Humanity's song so lifeless

My heart now urges on

Each bloody kill

Let's stop.


I hope you all enjoyed today's hub and lots of love to everyone from my little corner of Wales.

      Very interesting hub. Enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. In the age of 20, (i.e. before joining my government service, I have practiced several months after completing other lessons to learn typing on a typewriter. This is called as a master line. All the keys of the key board of the typewriter are pressed by typing this line. The same process is also on the keyboard of the PC.

      You are an inspiration FOR finding inspiration. All we have to do is be open to a word, idea or suggestion and our writing takes off. There have been times when all I hear is a song lyric and the result is a ten page story. This HUB was really clever and wise. Thank you for being such a compassionate human being.

      ah yes....I have a special fondness for these special lovely creatures. The night I went into labor with my daughter we scurried to the hospital. The doctors told me to walk around in the parking lot till my water broke. And we did.

      Just as I felt that happen while strolling in the parking lot, a most beautiful red fox crossed our path.

      She was on her way to some important engagement for sure.

      Lovely and so heartfelt....not one more should be killed just for the 'hunt.'

      Angels are on the way ps

      Hi Eddy, beautifully done as always. I read your list of possible sources of inspiration, for me it's all the above and from wonderful writers like yourself.

      You certainly were inspired by that simple sentence to write with great zeal. I love your poem. I saw a fox once in my yard when I lived up north and it was a beautiful creature to behold.

      Dear Eddy, I totally agree with you that the killings must stop. I wish I knew how to do that. If I had the power, there would be no more killings of innocent animals on this Earth!

      I am amazed as always at the depths of your talents! Nothing is beyond you my friend ;) Pearl

      Another beautiful piece of work, although in a fun style you have conveyed a serious persecution issue that should touch the hardest hearted. Love the images you have chosen. Voted up and beautiful.

      What a lovely choice for writing, Eddy. I think the pictures of those lovely foxes are quite inspiring. Not long ago, I was in my car and couldn't believe to see a fox in Ottawa. I could imagine seeing one outside of the city but not in the city! But we have many parks and I suppose they can get their way in the city through those parks! Unfortunately, I couldn't take a picture of it while driving!

      Great acrostic with all the letters of the alphabet :-)

      Great idea and it works so well. Here foxes are not loved so well as they were introduced and are great killers of our native wild-life, but some people still feed them!
