    Sanity

Green bananas
one time
hang high
pregnant.
Frogs
baked
brick hard
lie
from rain
to rain.
Salmon
jump falls
up river fly
and die.
Insanity
made sane.

Seymour~
Darling, you really should not stay out in this searing heat so long without a hat.
Paranoiac delusions can occur.  

*actually, I'm intriqued by the way
your mind rambles ...

pregnant green bananas
petrified frogs
dead salmon
and sanity  

Yep, makes sense to me.
But I was just out in the sun also.  
Love you ... honestly.

We humans do a lot of things that make a whole lot less sense than swimming up a waterfall. I liked your poem, short and well written, and always with a great deal to say

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

There is a rhyme and reason to it all. Sometimes on first glance it just doesn't seem that way. Great poem, Sy!
