Croaking Frogs

As you can see, dear visitors, I have changed the lay-out of my haiku-blog. I also have changed the lay-out of my other weblogs. The result .... you can see here, but also on my other weblogs. They have all the same lay-out so it has become an unity.

Maybe you know the very famous haiku by Matsuo Basho:

old pond
a frog jumps in
sound of water

It's a wonderful haiku. And it was one of the first haiku by Basho which I read. I wrote another frog-haiku inspired by this one of Basho.

croaking frogs
scent of the old pond
in the evening

It's what I call an Impromptu verse, just written "ins blauen hinein" right on this moment. Basho has written wonderful haiku. If you would like to read more about Basho and his haiku visit my other blog Basho Revisited.
On that weblog I publish essays about verses by Basho and in every episode I try to write a new haiku in the same tone and sense as the one by Basho.

Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

Thank you Valli for your kind words. Frogs are lovely creatures and a great theme for haiku.
