Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today’s Daily Create is what an Amazon Echo might look like in something around your house– and I spotted this ceramic toad I made in the 70s. Funny, the silly things we used to create, but I do like toads– I think they are fascinating.
So I looked up the kind of toads we might find in our area and I discovered the Great Basic spadefoot toad is the most prominent in our dry area and wrote a poem about its characteristics. For a look at a real one:
Rotund bug eater,
hind toe a spade, rock disguise,
hiding in the grass,
unseen, we wander right by
this small ground burrowing toadSheri Edwards
