I don't know, guys, I've just been out of inspiration today. :/

As I hold a tiny frog in my hand

I can’t help but think about my life’s plans

This little frog doesn’t know anything about life

Just that he eats bugs

And avoids bikes

This little frog doesn’t have a plan

I wonder if his brain is even big enough to understand

To comprehend

The world going on around us

He knows enough to hop away to survive

He knows enough to stay with his frog army and thrive

What am I supposed to do about life?

I wonder if this tiny frog I hold in my hand thinks about life

Like does he have a tiny little frog plan?

Does he have a tiny little frog wife?

I wonder if he even cares

About his tiny little frog life

Umwelt (pronounced oom-velt) is one of my new favorite words. It refers to the experience of being a creature that you could never understand. A human just can't know what it is to be a frog. I like a nice contemplative poem though. Perhaps I'm a bad person for asking but do you think you could swallow it for a hundred bucks? Things eat other things, it's nature, so it's not cruel. Well, no more cruel than nature. I enjoyed the poem.

What a blessing and curse to be gifted with such a wondering mind. Maybe it is condescending of us to assume such a creature as a frog would not experience life as we do, yet of course I am inclined to relate with you. Thanks for sharing this simple and beautiful pondering poem.

These questions bring me back to my psychobiology course at university. There are a lot of things we can learn about ourselves from animal brains. It's quite surprising how complex the behavior of animals with such tiny brains can be.

The purpose of structured poetry isn't to rhyme. It's the thought being expressed. And, if you're going to rhyme it has to be consistent, and, well, structured. Prosody matters. And NEVER force the line to the needs of the rhyme, or, rhyme a word with itself. The reader will notice, and frown.

Take a look at the excerpt from Stephen Fry's, The Ode Less Traveled, on Amazon. It's the best explanation of prosidy and structure I've found.

Sorry my news isn't better. But you did ask. 😛

I am pretty sure he cares about his life but possibly not aware that he cares
we have one living by an outdoor water tank that is always careful not to get stepped on!
Looks like a nature day today!
