farewell to Basho

by Paganini Jones

empty bucket
tadpoles vanish
so silently

garden pond
a heron

no fish or frog
just wind

frog, pond, plop! Loved that one also. I admit I was looking for tadpoles in our local ponds this year and was disappointed. Your first one leaves just enough to imagine - a good mystery for a child, also. Thanks for these.
