Here I sit by a pond. Pondering. Aware…

What would it be like to be a frog.

Here I sit by a pond, a frog. I am still, aware of my surroundings…. I remain still, aware. A fly passes by, turns and returns. My tongue stretches out and catches it. Swallow. I sit still…aware. A shadow covers over. Splash, dive.

Here  I sit at the bottom of a pond…still…aware

I move to the edge and up under some plants. I poke my head up through the surface and breath…aware. 

I see a human. I remain still …aware. 

Here I sit by a pond…pondering… aware . Am I a human? I ponder therefore I am.
