Toad on the Spirit Path

Half Moon, Bridge over By-PassUnder a leopard spotted half moon,
walking the white ways,
an unexpected companion,
flickering like a leaf
not a mottled sycamore
but a toad, real fat and heavy,
grounding amphibian,
stony bellied, squat,
calling for careful footsteps
as she makes her way into the unknown.
