The Frog Ocean-My Determined Ghost (Part Two)

“The past is a very determined ghost, haunting every chance it gets.”
― Laura Miller, Butterfly Weeds

The Frog Ocean – My Determined Ghost  (Part One)

                     Autumn on The Frog Ocean Is my determined ghost.

My family trees
Have roots here.
Family Trees that are varied, colorful,

     There are members of the clans Who by choice never leave,

Some move a few miles
Only to return,

Some, like myself
Leave The Frog Ocean,
Only to remain haunted
When Autumn returns.

Exercise care

The Frog Ocean .

It is
A state of mind
Much as  it is real.

Part of a marshy labyrinthine
Not quite solid ground,
In the southern most parts                                          thumb_Frog Ocean Road 21_1024.jpg
Of the heart,
And New Jersey.

  2. Wonderfully imaginative!!! I loved the spider one. This is my year of The Spider. I came to know, back in August, an Orb Weaver, who spun her web every night outside our garage. She was a pumpkin spider. And this morning, I was happy to note a new resident spider in my bathroom.

    Wishing you a very happy Samhain, tomorrow. 🙂

    1. Yes, it is very real. Located in Southern New Jersey USA.
      The other sites mentioned in the photos of Part 1 and 2 of The Frog Ocean; Mad Horse Creek, Black Bottom, Canton Green, are also very real as identified in the photos.
      I do not know how The Frog Ocean was named…but during the time I lived there, during the spring through summer the sound of the frogs singing at night was often overwhelming.
