Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge, Basho's famous 'the old pond'




the old pond
a frog jumps in
the sound of water
(Matsuo Basho, 1644-1694)

Lilies closing their buds
Moon to keep his watch round


the old pond
a frog jumps in
the sound of water
(Matsuo Basho, 1644-1694)

Wind caresses the pine trees
Perfect for a cup of tea

My shoes are in the old pond
Have to move on – on frog feet
