I was cruising down a rural road at night at about 10 m.p.h., and I notice this frog hopping about two feet into the air down the road.  I could not help but stop, and shoot a macro photo of it. This frog was quite kind to just sit there and stare back at me, while I put a camera in his face. Perhaps the flash blinded him. You must click on the photo to really appreciate the clarity.

My Momma

A free verse poem dedicated to animals

My momma loves me.

My momma cares for me.

My momma feeds me.

My momma doesn’t diet.

My momma doesn’t need drugs.

My momma isn’t fashionable.

My momma doesn’t need electronics.

My momma knows where I am.

My momma’s family is close by.

My momma says that perhaps

Mankind can learn from her,

and all the other animals, because

The only things she fears is them.

The destruction they cause in

The environment and the world.

My momma says mankind is supposed

To be higher order thinkers, but

The animals seem to be smarter.

My momma says that mankind is suffering

because of their choices.

If only mankind could learn from

My momma.

Lunch Break – A Tanka

Break room here I come.

Reaching in the fridge for lunch,

Warming my food.

Thirty minutes. Eat quick!

Head back to finish the day.
