old pond

old pond
the frog
blinks first

First published in Kernels, a new e-journal

As some of you will be aware, this is neither the first old pond nor the first frog in the history of haiku.

Made me smile. I'm very relieved that there are plenty of frogs and ponds to go around. May the haiku well never run dry!
