The Frog Prince


needing
transformation
helper found at well-side
promising what seems so simple
fulfilled

He was there not of his making and she there from her mother’s need.
He seized the opportunity, she promised.
The need was met.
Later came the time for reckoning.
Three denials and yet compliance at mother’s insistence.
Finally the revelation all’s well that ends well.
What’s it all about?
princes, frogs, mothers, daughters, wells, water and decapitation in order to live.
Paradox, unanswered questions abound ordinary reality is suspended in order to allow enchantment to take place upon life’s stage. 
Transformation and potentiality abounds.
