Pond Life

(for Basho)

I know nothing of frogs
and their plop-and-splashing,
translations with exclamation
points, and those

But I have met cutting words
in darkness, echoed again
against the shattered
sunspill silence of my
lily pad heart.


In April, we poem. Usually over at Poetic Asides. Day 3. Come play!
