Tiny frogs

Mulch startles,

lifts,then falls silent,

tiny frog.


Pebbled brown,

in stones and clover,

tender life.

Two recent prompts from Carpe Diem fit perfectly with a recent garden observation and a spring photo.  I am linking to Carpe Diem #1049: Fish and Frogs and Carpe Diem #1048: Stones.

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms such as choka and kikobun. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water.
