From the Treetop

Written in reply to Carpe Diem Tan Renga #84.

            from the treetop
            emptiness dropped down
            in a cicada shell.
            -Basho-(trans. Jane Reichhold)

            in a dry pond
            swims all the world.

  1. Nice second stanza I like the faint reference to that world-famous haiku by Basho “frog pond”

  2. A very nice paradox! 🙂
