To be read as the famous green frog we all know and love  🙂


I’ve drowned myself
In a fountain of fizz
She left me this way
Such a diva, she is

All I can see
When I look around
Are bottles and bottles
Strewn on the ground

There’s one in my hand
And a pounding in my head
And an angry blonde glaring
Now, this I do dread

She said to remember
What I did just last night
But I think I forgot
And that gives me a fright

Did I behave like a toad?
It’s all a bit groggy
No wonder I’m feeling
A little bit froggy

I think that it’s best
To find my own way
I’ve turned a bit green
Though I like me this way

Back at the pond
I won’t drink anymore
Lest, again, my dear piggy
Finds me on the floor

Dazzling nature’s eye

With a spectrum of color

Autumn paints the leaves

Friday Fantasy ~ The Ghost of Autumn – #poetry

Red as the crimson, in the trees

In a dress she wears, so grand

The ghost of autumn, unveils herself

As leaves that fall upon land

She scatters her earthly presence

Throughout the forests, serene

And leaves behind a masterpiece

No imagination has ever seen

She blends as one with nature

Tis her time to shine, it’s true

The spirit of seasons changing

She’s the colors of the world, anew

Aphrodite ~ #poetry #thedailypost

Her power of love weakened the mighty

The Goddess, a beauty was she, Aphrodite

Clothed in silken white, she gleamed

The vision of every human male’s dream

They bowed to her, these men, devoted

Hoping they would soon be noticed

And stand by her side, as her lover, no more

Immortality, is all they ever wished for

The sounds of autumn

Much like whispers in the breeze

Speak, in subtle tones
