Frogs

A palm tree near the pond, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 
 

Frogs, as I pass by your pond,
show me your beauty.
Come out of the mud.
Taste the clear night air.
Pretend to be stars or moonlight!
Sing to the flashing planets,
sing with your flickering tongues,
sing a song of sixpence,
fill your lungs with spring!

Sweet

all the little shrines
reviving weary pilgrims—
honey on the way

Sweet is the taste of holiness.

liberated leaves
falling to the forest floor—
first frost of autumn
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
muddy from the storm—
sacred threads and marigolds
in the temple court
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
deep in the forest
vicious creatures slavering
for a taste of blood

Taste

June sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 

Desert sun rising—
greedy for a taste of fire
lizards lick the air.
