The frogs

Outside my window

a cacophony of frogs

twang like rubber bands

This is the "pond" that is sort of kitty corner (is it kiddy corner? catty corner? I don't know, I've never typed it out before!) from our backyard. Lately, the bullfrogs have taken to being REALLY LOUD at night, to the point that it's sometimes hard to get to sleep. Sometimes I'm not sure what's more annoying - dogs or frogs? Aaahhh, the country. After 10 years of not living in it, I wonder how long it will take to truly get used to it again?

I remember the
sounds of bullfrogs filling the
night air with their songs!

Your 'Scooter' (in the first 3 photos) looks very much like my Ms. Kitty.
Hugs and blessings,

I've never had that problem. I wonder if bullfrogs are as annoying as crickets?

Great haiku!

Wow, the perfect haiku and even super Japanese. I actually love the sounds of frogs at night :)

How funny. I just used cacophony earlier today. It's amazing how loud they can get.

We have loud crickets every night now!!!

Summertime sounds, they are much more romantic before three or four hours of listening!!
