FROG BASKING IN WATER

FROG BASKING IN WATER

The old pond;
A frog jumps in,-
The sound of the water.
Basho

Basho oh Basho
I too have a frog in my pond

At night he sings
many times his size

In evening he sits
still as a haiku master
on the wide stone ledge
where water flows before falling

splitting it
around and over his back
head above the water
big eyes smililng
