Night Frog This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Hiding in the undergrowth,

Wading in the pond,

Bobbing on the mosses,

Searching for the moon.

Eyes blindly staring,

Mouth - lipless - gaping,

Chest outward swelling,

Enamored with the moon.

Seeking out the light,

Paddling through the marsh,

Floating on the surface,

Wanting the blushing moon.

Fingers - webbed - reaching,

Legs backward kicking,

Nose silently sniffling,

Longing to hold the moon.

Kissing her white forehead,

Nuzzling her pale cheek,

Feeling that cold glow

Reflected by the dying moon.

Eyes lightly misting,

Breath - foggy - gasping,

Arms limply hanging,

Mourning the faithless moon.
