Frogs sit crying on great lily pads in the middle of the pond

Disturbed only by a moaning wind that rattles out of a moonless night

That wind brings with it promise of much chaos and disturbance to come

Slowly the frogs slip into the glassy surface of the pond, to hide

They leave only mere echoes of their existence, the ripples whisper history

The moonless sky gives a great heave, the death rattle of the peace deafens the pond with its grand thunder

Flowers bend in the gale, praying silent prayers that their folded petals may open to kiss the sun once more, to taste itís light and drink from it deeply

The wind dies a calm death, sudden and quiet, as if poisoned.

The eeriness, it creeps and slithers like a snake, slithers up the spine of every creature who understands the feeling in the air

A howl, then a roar, then a sound beyond words or feeling, Hellís choir raises to a grand crescendo and sustains

And they fall, the choir disbands, leaving the performance to ring in the air, to make it shiver and hum

A frog slips out of the pond on to his lily pad, followed closely by his peers

They bask in the darkness of the absent moon, and reap the stillness.

I feel frogs have a certain... mystery to them, a certain aura. There's more to them than meets the eye.

When I was a little girl living in the country, I use to have a pet frog, he/she was not green, but brown. But my Dad told me to let it go. I did keep it in water and with some rocks and weeds. Nice Poem by the way.
