Soul at Peace

If I were a carnivore,
I would be a frog.
Hopping toward 
the rhythm of croaks
lining the river’s edge.
Adding my own ribbit
to the chorus of
many scattered frogs.
Jumping from lily pad
to lily pad until I find
the perfect one.
Hungrily unrolling a
long, sticky tongue,
feasting on the juicy bugs
that get too close.
My stomach is satisfied,
my soul at peace.
