Once Pondered

It was summertime.

Season of sounds

Without limits

Daylight, endless hours

Searching and seeing

Breathing and being

curious.

A pond is one universe.

Sodden with life

For children

Frogs tell it best

Not needy

Hiding an option

Temporary adoption

Be gentle.

Understanding our existence.

So very easy

In summer

Solitary inspection

Waters and reflection

living.

    Beautiful write, Susan. Who but you could find beauty in frogs? I love the summer feel of this one, but then, I love summer.

      Thank you Charles…as a kid, I loved summer . Now, except for early morning pond watching, not so much. 😉

        I can relate! We were talking about the heat yesterday, and Sherry and I agree, that we love the summer mornings on the deck, but the afternoons are for those who have a pool or live right on the lake. When we lived on Lake Travis, I loved the hot summer days, and waited anxiously for them to arrive. Now, as you say, not so much.

Tell me something good...
