Failure

Inspired by a post on a wonderful blog, Impromptu Promptings, the poem shared here is just a simple peice of thinking, just a thought.

Failure

I, like the bullfrog
perched on a log
among the green reeds

drooping beneath
the afternoon’s heft,
after it’s failed

to snatch the dragonfly
humming, hovering
above its rest like a grand idea,

will turn my face upward
and know the sun is still warm.
