Pollywog’s First Prayer

May my eyes rest on a bed of algae and pond scum.

May this globular body be coated in camouflage.

May there be troubled clouds, howling storms and runoff.

May my tail vanish and teach how remembering is a way of forgetting.

May frogs leap like frogs.

Pollywog’s First Prayer

May my eyes rest on a bed of algae and pond scum.

May this globular body be coated in camouflage.

May there be troubled clouds, howling storms and runoff.

May my tail vanish and teach how remembering is a way of forgetting.

May frogs leap like frogs.
