Frog Fib

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads has a mini weekend challenge.  This challenge required a certain form and so I try because I like challenges.
Do
You
Think I
Can count spots
On this Leopard frog
As he hides in running water?

sounds like a riddle. :)

Sandee said...

I'm guessing no. It's just a guess.

Have a terrific weekend. :)

Grace said...

That would be tough to do ~ Good question Gail ~

Lynne said...

Probably you can!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Maybe you can, but I want to know - what frog?

Gemma Wiseman said...

Almost like a sphinx riddle. A fun fib.

Sam Edge said...

is it 2,3,5,8,13,21 ???

Such a beautiful photo... relieved to know that's a frog and not a snake! They are pretty too... from about a mile away! :-)

Lots of fun, Gail. He's almost invisible, isn't he? I don't know about spots, but you counted syllables just fine. Thanks for playing!

As
Well
As we
Can count all
Stars in toad heaven

nice... with so much suggested and implied from condensed poet's reflections hidden in the running river of time...

Ella said...

I love this! I had a Leopard frog in my yard last summer. They are quite fun to see ;D

Dreaming said...

Nice job given the constraints of the style... which would be the type of challenge I would enjoy

You have so many types of frog and toads over there.
I suspect it might be a tad difficult to count those spots.

Ok i think YOU can but no one else could count the spots on the frog.
how about doing a post on what you did, since i for one have no clue, i read a comment about syllables, but don't see that and the comment with numbers makes no sense. soooooo please do a post and explain and see if we can comment doing it.

Sandra said...

i went to Hedgewitch and read what it means and now am really confused. and still have no clue.. good job. i think.

jabblog said...

Nice! We used to quieten our children by suggesting they count the spots on our Dalmatians. The youngest tried joining the dots . . .

Saucy Kodz said...

TO COUNT OR NOT TO COUNT - THAT IS THE QUESTION......NOPE :)

grapeling said...

Only if he's knee-deep. (groan...) - Sweet and a good question ~ M

Beachanny said...

I'm thinking we weren't meant to - as nature hides him; I'm thinking he represents so much of what we can't count (on) in life. Well done.

McGuffy Ann said...

They don't make it easy, but you are Wonder Woman. I love frogs, and most all critters.

Susie Clevenger said...

I am not sure...perhaps there is a riddle in the verse.. :)

LindaG said...

Heh. I can't hardly SEE the frog, let along count the spots.

I think you did a good job with this one, Gail. :-)

Loredana Donovan said...

Fun! I like this! :)

Poet Laundry said...

I agree...this is a fun one!
