    Ah, pinkletinks aka Spring peepers are nocturnal carnivores, emerging at night to feed primarily on small invertebrates, such as beetles, ants, flies, and spiders.

    Someone thinks they should be awake, perhaps a child.

    I like this one! So much room for my mind to wander. :)

    Wow – spring peepers are frogs! We mustn't get them here in Ireland. I thought perhaps they were a type of flower that only opened in sunlight and I imagined a child running a stick along a fence to make them open (waken) up!

    Now I imagine these are the slats of a bridge across a little stream and the child is trying to making noise so the frogs will show themselves. Cute haiku. :)

    Probably the Spring sounding the alarm for Summer to awaken.
