OLD POND


Well still some time until the local ponds and gardens become alive with frogs and toads.

The above haiku is Basho's famous 'Old Pond' stanza:


old pond
a frog leaps in
water's sound

I'm hoping that everyone takes Basho's lead and jumps right into the haikai pond and makes some waves some noise but not so much that the old world sounds, traditions and processes are drowned out or swamped rather built on, moved on from.
