He shall hide me in his pavilion... and set me upon a rock..Psalm 27: 5

How sad and drastic...
To isolate itself in plastic..
Poor old amphibian
A recluse in his pavilion
Who rests on compost piles
Should get out to walk
For at least 10 miles....
Or even jump and jog...
Before sitting upon a rock....
Alas! he's not a normal frog
But suffers from a mental block
To forget his home is in a bog...
And not a plastic bag...
Poetry by me AJP...

Isn't it funny how a simple thing like a plastic bag by the way it is shaped can trigger the imagination?:) I looked in back of the holly hocks that I was shooting some pictures of before they disappear completely and saw a better one of the plastic bag on the compost pile that my husband had left behind.

    Thank you for your comments...This is just a fun photo and I love seeing things like this .In
    reality the plastic bag was colorless but I outlined around it to use the green colored filter to
    emphasize the resemblance more to a frog...
