Forward Focused

Leaping, hopping rabbit, bunny

Leaping

Into this year.

Marching forward each day.

Never look backward, not going

That way

Leap Day

Today,

An extra day,

What shall I do with it?

Making a special memory

To look

Back on

If I am blessed to be alive

Four years from now, if not,

Then it’s for my

Family.

#HaikuHorizonsWeeklyChallenge Week#135 Prompt: Frog

(When I wrote this poem I was thinking of my childhood days long ago when we children used to play Leapfrog, not the electronic game they have now, it was a fun physical activity, we played outdoors at recess. (Leapfrog is a game in which players take turns in leaping over other players that are bent over from the waist. –Dictionary.com) 

I wasn’t quite sure if children still played Leapfrog now so I looked it up on the Internet and found some videos on You Tube that I thought were worth sharing. Looks like Leapfrogging is still alive and well! 😊)
