So true, Rizwana! At least animals live according to their natural instincts; humans have an intellect which very often is badly made use of and then goes to waste! ~ Regards // paul

Thank you for the 'like', Arthur. If you are a prince-frog, then I am sure that a lovely princess will soon be coming to your rescue:) All the best! // paul

I like this Haiku, Paul. I interpreted the frog as the trapped prince, or any prince charming too. Congrats! Sandra

Dear Paul, I got quite a giggle reading this and thinking of a prince looking like a frog. Still, the prince would probably rather find a princess than another prince. LOL So cute! Congratulations! Love, carolyn

Glad you enjoyed, Carolyn! It also crossed my mind that the frog hopped to the pond after coming out of the closet! Thank you for a lovely visit and nice comments. Love &Hugs // paul

Paul in haiku you must stay factual-so a frog could not be spellbound or yearn for a kiss- Congratulations on your winning verse. Light & Love

Thank you Debbie. Yes, I understand your point; in my mind I had a human-frog who was under a spell, waiting to be kissed in order that the spell gets broken. // Have a nice weekend. // paul

I like thinking of this one as a prince trapped in the frog's body! Congrats on the winner list, Paul.
