As he pulled it from the railing there sat a tree frog. It seemed friendly and appeared to like me. So I told John not to touch, as if he would have, finding me a little silly for wanting a picture. I ran downstairs and hurried back. There it sat, and as I took the pictures he seemed not to care. I thought the flash would alarm him.
I felt really proud of myself and sauntered back into the house. As I traveled past the deck and took one more look out upon the railing, he had gone. But for once the moment didn't escape me and I have him captured in color to look at whenever, my heart feels like it needs a smile.
