FURU IKE YA – OLD POND

An anthology inspired on the famous « frog pond » haiku
by renown haiku poet Matsuo Bashô (1644 – 1694)

*

The pond at dusk –
louder and louder
frogs in concert

*

The pond at night
glistens in the moonlight
like a cold mirror –
a frog sets the tone followed
by all the croaking chorus

*

Throwing a pebble
in the quiet old pond
sound of splashing water –
lots of frogs jump suddenly
into the dark green depth
