Boredom or Bliss

Satin white lily pads
cushion the high jump
performed by the three-legged frog.

Heated blaze bakes his fading green coat.
He leaps into his hot tub paradise.


       Life is floating by.


A big grin and loud croak announce his pleasure.

What appears to be boredom for one set of eyes ,
is bliss for another.
