Dawn’s pinks and purples
Wait for Sun to show its face
Daybreak colors pale
What happened to eggs
Ditch is dry brutal drought’s woes
We will never know
From flatulent frogs
Bubbles rise ripple water
Laughing in the lake
Bullfrog watches me
From a puddle drying up
Ditch has done gone dry
It is so like men
Breaking wind water bubbles
pulled a frog’s finger
Trees form a green crown
Against the sunset’s orange grays
Another day gone

Great selection here, Tim! Parched earth, raging skies, and the frog shots are unique!
Frog is adorable.
That looks like one relaxed frog. 😄
I agree, a great selection of photos, Tim. I still wonder what kind of eggs those were. I hope there will be enough water left in the ditch for the frogs. A little cooler up here today, mid 80s and dingy cloud hazy skies. Caught a peek of a bright orange sun just above the horizon tonight.
The frogs woll go to the clear ditch when their pond dries up. We are still in the mid 90s during the day. Thanks, Lavinia.
Awesome pics, and poetry, Tim. The bubbles are gone, how wild. The frog pics are awesome.
Poor frog…. I hope there is more water around.
Great poetry and nice shots Timothy 🙂
The frogs will hop over to the clear ditch. Thanks, Rudi.
ciao Timothy 🙂
Love the frog shots! I’ve been watching turtle hatchling make thereceay to the sea. Very exciting!
Whatching the turtlelets scamper to the sea is way too cool. Thanks, Holly.
I put a pic up in IG.
Great shots and especially of the frog Tim!
welcome Tim! 💖
Frog art is epic. What captures.
I was going to say yesterday that the ‘bubbles’ looked like frog eggs and look at your photos today! Frog art, skies and poems, made my day! Thank you, my friend!
Thanks, Marina. Happy to make your day.
Fantabous shots – love the frog – and wonderful poetry
Thanks, Dale. Did you get to see the moon. Too cloudy here.
I haven’t seen the moon in ages. But last night was cloudy, so especially no.
Yeah. And peek-a-boo moon, too!
Der einsame Frosch…hoffentlich kann er bei der Trockenheit überleben.
There were two frogs. They will hop over to the Clearwater ditch when that puddle dries up.. Thanks, einfachtilda.
My favorite haiku is the second to last. It is difficult to incorporate idiomatic expression, personification, and farts into a haiku, and you have done it brilliantly. Too many awesome photos for me to pick a favorite
I did have to ponder that one for a bit to fit it all in. I’m really happy you noticed. Thanks, JYP.
You did it masterfully. Very impressive
Thanks. I appreciate it.
I love the frog studies!
You’re welcome, Tim.
Ok, I’ll say it: Title of this post Version 2 has to be Frog Fart.
Yes you said it. Thanks, Maj Sher.
The frogs are adorable and the sky photos you took are amaaaazing!!! Love the poem you added to it. 😊
The frogs are so cute. The poems are six silly Timkus poems. A Timku is in the form of Haiku, but its not a Haiku because it’s in English. Thanks, Samantha.
I fell in love with this frog. Now, I’m worried about his puddle drying up.
You got some great frog shots, Tim. If I was a princess, I’d kiss him!
Thanks, Resa. They hopped over tho the clear water ditch. They are fine. Dale un beso a la rana ¿Qué obtienes? ¡Labios viscosos! Incluso princesas como tú.
EW!!! xo – for you, not the frog
Guácala = Ew in Spanish.
Cool! Guácamole came to mind. they must be rooted together, somewhere!
While Guácamole is good, it dies have that Ew look to it.
I was going to comment don’t pull that frog’s finger and then you beat me to it ha! Great minds…
Twisted minds think alike. Thanks, Brian.
Super skies .. and great frog shots Tim
