Happy Froggentine's Day

A plant with seven heart-shaped leaves, or sort of a flower for luck; whatever it is, it bloomed for Froggentine's Day. You need the luck of the frog.
Yeap, the poem is intended.



O Hymen! O hymenee!
Why do you tantalize me thus?
O why sting me for a swift moment only?
Why can you not continue? O why do you now cease?
Is it because, if you continued beyond the swift moment, you would
soon certainly kill me?


Walt Whitman, "Leaves of grass", Book IV.

Great image! Not too sure about the verse, but then I usually just look at the pictures :)

Pretty fog valentine. It's lovely.

By the way, at 5 in the morning it's a "fog" valentine, but after more hours of sleep (and a a kiss, of course), I'm sure it will turn into a "frog" valentine.

A bit sarcastic combination with the verse, I know :-) Thanks Dzeni.

Confusing green fog of war at 5 am. Poor Katie. The kiss of the frog will turn it to fog. A vanishing Prince, everything is upside down these days.

Walt Whitman was crazy. Your seven fold heart petaled Flower is beautiful.

The word for today is Dugati.
It is a 4 wheel drive Bugatti that doesn't mid getting dirty.

Correction: Walt Whitman was beautifully crazy. Only to differentiate him from the wackos :-)
