Frog Bog - Poem by sílvia oliveira

And then a frog sang before the bog in that late afternoon.

All of a sudden, its first loud song struck my ear, deaf for nature
that day in particular.

Even if the rhythm was dreary, I could felt something unusual
surging from that kind of surreptitious soul of mine...

    this was excellent. Short and too the point, but expressing emotion in the process. Just a frog singing, but sometimes even that can have an effect on us. I really like your style, check out my stuff if you get a chance (Report)Reply
