A fellow islander, here in the State of Hawaii
Plain common folks in touch with its aina (land)
Noticed by many soupers long before this tadpole swam the pond
Well-grounded, skilled with a pen, with a memorable persona,
In my view, I became a...Read More

Let no person ever put you down!
Who are these clowns?
Wear your sunglasses at night,
They find that an offensive sight.
It's really OK to be the unique you.
You don't need to attend Tadpole
Let them think you are off the wall! 
That's because they...Read More

The Tadpole,
That Never Became a Frog
Written: By Tom Wright

I have tried putting myself in another man’s shoes,
To experience the pain about their love for brews.

The primary thing of which I always think,
Is the time of day I’ll take my next...Read More

Everything in this world is a fleeting illusion,
We live contented in unmitigated delusion,
What we can see perhaps is not quite as it is,
We hear the audible, not the sounds we miss.

In a pool of water, looks bent the immersed stick,...Read More

I stood peeking through the keyhole 
and saw; mommy and daddy roll
in bed playing leapfrog.
I wish for a hotdog
I'll wait and go catch a tadpole.

A Shower of Sediment
In such a whimsical action 
a half-asleep routine 
shaped disrobed and left stark naked
this vehicle, this housing, a shell
scarred skin, greying hair, bones, muscle 
and more besides with plenty of stories to tell.
Awash with collected fallacious matter
amid mind obstacles and...Read More

Ten tiny pollywogs
Happy as can be
Along came an alligator
Ate up three.

Seven skittish pollywogs
Beneath a lily pad
Up swam a rainbow trout
They all died sad....Read More

You're a puppy, I'm a big dog
You're a guppy, I'm a big cod

You're a piglet, I'm a big hog
You're a shrimp, I'm a big prawn
You're a baby, I am King Kong
You got a twig,...Read More

Frogs Echo On The Miles
Mosquito populations explode in murky bogs
Their larvae swim with tadpoles in this incubation
This ugly undertaking commanded by their nature
Constant as the day is long and just as distant
Marsh water echos soon produces frogs

As katydids reverberate through forest wilderness
A noise most...Read More

“The Evolution of a Broken Heart”

In thy hands I gently placed it
Lacking Hesitation’s pleas and virtues
‘twas ne’er a time to be uncourageous
Plucked somewhere from deep within
My honorable, clean gilded home where
Pure Intention sat regally Spartan
upon her stony throne

In thy hands...Read More

Tabitha Tadpole

She has been a tad slow for her entire life

While all her friends are out playing leap frog
Tabitha has yet to see her tail fall off

All the ribbits that she hears makes it...Read More

It wriggled neath the thick dark mud
A small tadpole not yet a stud 
Arms and legs not quite formed
Eyes still blind head deformed

Covered with a coat of slime
To keep him warm and alive
No more time to eat or drink
Sleepy eyes...Read More

My childhood has had
a mixture of ups and downs 
Good times and bad times

I loved the bunk beds 
We had fun jumping from

Being a ten year old was neither
a bad time or a good time
It was a time I started to try
and find myself
I found out at that time
that sometimes your friends
turned out to be your

Beneath the Sea

Through the journey, life arrives
Underwater – start their lives
Stable neither hot nor cold
Soft tiny eggs there to behold

Of such a time, lay vulnerable
For many eggs is tactical
Protection of the animal
Camouflaged with gravel

Frogs and toad, amphibian class
Eggs that float in jelly...Read More

wading time on the pond's breath
tucked in pole's warm pool

Wait a moment
You are a youth energy-filled, full of life
and you jump up and down
in the narrow pond of life

You are so powerful and honored
and you create troubled waters as you like

A pool of Tadpoles
In large numbers they swim
in the pool of water they collide
struggling over mosquito larvae
biting each other over scarce food

Swim, swim and fight, fight daily
over larvae and whatever comes
and drops looking like food 

They have one aim in struggling life
to snatch,...Read More

And they lived hoppily

The princess sat along a stream,
crying in the sun
Closed her eyes and dreamt a dream,
about the perfect one

For love had never come her way,
she longed for it so much
The tender words that he might say,

It begins life as a tadpole
Uncanny resemblance to a sperm!
Therefore I wonder how much of our (my) DNA
Is shared with the humble frog.
Why am I so ebullient under water?
Donned in lycre!
I float and float.
I let the water take over my...Read More

Watery nonsense
One time a stickleback
Asked a tadpole what’s the craic
He replied there’s nothin’ doing
It’s just the water I was viewing

So he slurped a glass of gin
And let the stickleback begin
To swim upside down in loops
Until his eyes began to droop

I’m becoming...Read More
