Encouraged by Desperation

Almost a month ago,

Odds stacked negatively,

November night,

Torrential rain,

He went.

Approaching the stop sign,

I was the enemy

I saw in a flash

Of car headlights

On white belly

And sprawling, airborne legs

The desperate flight.

I slowed.

And stopped,

Before continuing past the sign,

To look back hoping.

I saw him safely

Cross the road.

Strong perseverance.

Common toad.
