Morning Surprise!

Frog?…
Toad?…
I know not which
Not being versed in
the difference
 
Regardless..
This tiny creature was in
the outside water bowl
this morning
The bowl I keep at 
my backdoor for thirsty
neighborhood critters
 
It has been decades
since I have seen one
Decades…
since I lived far North
of where I now am
and a family of three
lived in the sand
around my front porch
 
Making their classic
sounds and catching
flies and dreaded
mosquitoes
Burrowing deep in
the sand to escape
the heat of the day 
to come out at 
twilight and grace
me their presence
 
A morning surprise…
Does this mean the
drought is ending?
Hopefully, this little
swimmer will not be 
a tasty snack for
a hungry barncat!
