Yellow Frogs

Our note is composed
Before the shroud of summer.
It’s a deep song offering
At the feet of rainy clouds.

Monsoon was a spring of spree.
Fresh rain drops had scattered us
In the paddy fields and ponds,
Where we organized shrill concerts
In bright yellow coats.
Leaping in love and diving in joy,
It was a paradise regained.

Monsoon is now a drought.
Our diving dreams die
With the paddy fields and ponds
Affected with the development.
As men cleave our lives,
All leaping joys end in the frying pan.
We hide in the unwanted holes.
Our tunes are wasted
Against the concrete walls.
Truly, we are now in yellow.

FABIYAS M V
*Monsoon rain comes to Kerala, immediately after summer,in June.Then the air will be noisy with the croak of frogs.When the first rain starts,the fields and ponds will be filled with frogs yellow in color.

    I live in southern New Jersey, where we have a similar species of anuran amphibian. New Jersey is home to the Pine Barrens tree frog. They are an endangered species now and are protected. They also make distinctive noises. Good interesting poem.

    All the world is suffering from change in the normal weather patterns & still the USA and other countries are not doing enough to halt the carbon emissions! Congrad's on your Serious verse winning. This is an important issue to draw attention too. Light & Love

    Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Fab. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol

    Dear Fab I'll bet the yellow frogs sound like swamp tree frogs here. Your poem is beautifully sad and joyful all the same. love, Kathy

    A delightful verse! I am smiling after reading and gained a lesson too...Beautiful in verse and form I would call free verse though it may not be. Cynthia

    Hi Fabiyas - I have seen golden frogs, but I don't think I ever saw a yellow frog. Thanks for sharing this fascinating and educational poem. Are these yellow frogs poisonous? Also, does their color transfer if you touch them? Thanks for commenting on my poem. - Gail

    i love the images you've painted in this poem. i can see the yellow frogs (have only seen them in a zoo) in their "bright yellow coats" very vividly. i also love the line with "spring of spree" - nice one!

    A fantastic poem you have penned, FABIYAS MV. Congratulations! In fact, we're experiencing monsoon rain right now in our place but the frogs aren't yellow they are gray. Thanks for sharing and your kind comment to my poem, Silence. More power to you always and best wishes.
