Haiku For Carpe Diem Special #55, O. Mabson Southard’s “chanting, the pond’s frogs …”

Today is our first Carpe Diem special prompt using a haiku by O. Mabson Southard’s “chanting, the pond’s frogs …”. The goal for the Specials is to write a haiku in the same tone, sense and spirit as the one given. Southard wrote all of his haiku in the classical 5-7-5 structure, so the inspired haiku has to follow that 5-7-5 syllable structure.

Chanting, the pond’s frogs …
among the lilies’ dark pads –
the twinkle of stars

My inspired haiku is…

Red Bellied Black Snake In Dam

riveting, frogs’ song
attracts the attentions of
red belly black snake

Smiles, love and laughter
