Two toads met in the quiet little pond.
They spawned in the cozy lily basket.
They left behind a slimy string of black eggs
These hatched into squiggly little tadpoles.
Most stay inside the basket where it is safe
The ones that swim out become snacks for the King of the Koi pond
Mama toad is unconcerned
She’s busy napping under my bag of potting soil.
Follow the FLOWER.
