Frog fixation

The ancient eavesdropper

Frogs leap
lilly pad to pad,
plunk,
slap,
webbed
digits
leave 
wet
kisses on
heart-shaped
napkins,
algae-green
taffy throats
stretching out,
vocals
stuck
on repeat
ribbet-ribbets,
countless 
tympanums
in the vicinity
riveted,
whiz-snap
pops their
tongue whips,
wrangling
unsuspecting
insects,
sun soon warms
cold-bloodedness,
as slippery
skins seek 
shady shelter,
each amphibious 
grimace 
gracefully
diving
underwater,
scores of 
swimming   
eyes 
now
bubbling
about    
surface-wide,
while I sit 
pond-side  
lost in a
deep sigh.

  1. It’s almost spring, our beloved frogs will be back soon!

    • Yes!!! My favorite time of year! I’m biased though….my birthday’s a week before Spring 🙂 I love listening to amphibious symphonies outside my window. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂
