“awake again”

Written for:  The Twiglets #256 - "awake again"

I'm awake again.
Now you have company.

He is awake again,
and painting
after years
of dormancy.

she startles awake
eyes wide, state of confusion 
after kiss by frog

          A fellow from town of of Fish Lake
            had a tough time staying awake
                Fell asleep during film,
                on machines in the gym
           New prescription was a mistake.

    A nice twist on the frog kiss. Did she turn into a frog princess?

    I too like the froggy verse. I resently read an alternative fariy tail book that mashed several stories;
    ‘The Land of Stories; Worlds Collide’ by Chris Colfer – The Frog Prince was there too!
