Frog Pads

Croakers symphony await the rainy season a horny toad calls A burst of thunder rain coming down in torrents a mating frenzy lily pads submerge fertile eggs slowly sinking fish come for the feast new generations await symphonic debut a raindrop splashes By: Joseph May

From the horny toads to the single rain drop splashing, it just can't get any better than this haiku series!...I think u have taken the best of the best with your sprinkling of humor, science, and music! I can picture reading this poem in a book...hint hint...it is of the highest caliber! Great stuff here, Joseph. :) Gwendolen
