Oops, forgot to leave my comment. :)

Kerry, did you start Real Toads? You have pulled together the best group of poets. I'm so impressed by every piece I read. This is high-quality work all in one place. Thanks for letting me sneak in from time to time and play with you.

This is an older poem and written for a picture challenge which asked for a poem in under 10 minutes.

Linking in for a fun day with my toads peeps--which is a poetic phrase I like since frogs, if not toads, do indeed peep--anyway--I've got chores to do before I can enjoy myself, but I'll be back to read and comment this afternoon, and thanks to all here who have been so generous and kind in their comments and visits at my place.

De said...

Helloooo, Toads. Anybody else got a worn-down pencil lead yet? Whew. Hang in there! Looking forward to doing some great reading today, to inspire me for this last week. Happy Poeming!

Peggy said...

I think most things I write are a mixing of what I see on the outside or what I think about that is out there and what feelings it gives me inside. I wrote both of these poems today and they are posted together so I hope that is OK. Write on Toads. ( I do love the name of this blog)
