Pond Life: Lillypads and Frogs


lotus flower blooms
showa koi search old pond
pollywogs scatter

pulsing dragonfly
above shadowed frog on pad
unbridled tongue fast

    Hi Debs, I had to scamper over here to your pond and see what is a brewing....that first one is a true beauty with the oriental fish..I am easily woo'ed in the second with the pulsing dragonfly and shadows casted on frog...oh, I know this one is good...it shines, girl..Thanks for laughing with me earlier...you are a fine one to talk...you are JUST as silly as me and I thoroughly enjoy it! I am off to search for another gem of yours poetess Burch. :) Gwendolen

    Smiled ˜ Sounds like wild jungle in that safari's pond ˜ Here baby, take my hand and we'll walk aside the sea, atop the sands of peace amid tides of love * Let the wild consume their own ˜ My love, Always, John!:) ˜
