Frogs adore a bog

Sky squeezes wet clouds and showers drip through fingers and drop on earth’s grip. Drops peer through nerve ends to starving earth’s soul; soul fills in and crust moistens and drops slip on her skin. Brooks fill in, fields spill; canals feel thrilled; crabs bounce, fish pounce and cranes feel chilled; trees bend their heads, their hands and their arms; sap oozes through their stems, roots and palms. brooks pump the river river spills and floods marshland ~ frogs adore a bog
