a nickle-sized frog
annoys my little dog

it crosses the path
draws my canine's wrath

then quickly hops away
to live another day

  1. I'm guessing the frogs appeared with all that water. Hope all is okay with you & your family, Bridget! The poem brings back a memory of a dog of long ago scared of a bullfrog who lived in my mother's backyard. Fun!

    1. Yes, we suddenly have frogs, Linda! It was crazy rain and the wash across the street has been flowing pretty well for days. Monsoon season is always exciting (and dangerous). Isn't funny when a dog who is clearly bigger than the bullfrog is afraid?

  2. I especially like nickel-sized, and I like the picture!
