by the ancient pond, a haiku by Buson, translation by Jan Walls
古池の 蛙生ひ行く 落葉かな
(furuike no kawazu oiyuku ochiba kana)
by the ancient pond
a frog is growing older
among fallen leaves
(Buson – translation by Jan Walls)
Dipping into Word Pond today, I’m looking for something to spark my imagination. Splashes echoing: Bashō’s frog.
