Gray Tree Frogs

lichen on maple

With a chainsaw I was cutting fallen branches
when a patch of lichen moved
and changed into a frog.

A gray tree frog

They have been gathering here,
trilling and maybe arguing with that kingfisher
who returned again today.

The neighbor's little backyard pond,
must have spawned this noisy lot
who now return.
