Frog Collection

Making the trip
From pond to tree
Dozens of froglets
Cross this trail.


Crossing this trail
From pond to tree
Dozens of immature frogs.


Having already made the journey
From tadpole to froglet
Now they journey from pond to tree
Across my hiking trail.


You caught one!
A baby frog in your palm


A robin laughs
Watching these migrants journey.


A collection of haiku inspired by one experience. This one came from a hike we did, when after the first 100 ft. We found tiny new frogs making their way across the trail. It was pretty amazing, but even more so that it was so soon after starting our hike.

Dreams and Dollar $igns

On the other side of the lake
Scattered around the shoreline

We see dreams and dollar signs
A glint of evening light off the private lake,

And the trailing clouds tracing the sky,
Tell us ownership is a myth.

Under shady green maple leaves
Mosquitoes bite our legs.
