Sound of Water


Impression of Waterlilies

the old pond
a frog jumps into it
the sound of water

The water garden was only the impression of a real pond.  It was built in the backyard of the modest home and plot.  No matter to the frogs in spring.  The melodious sounds of Mr. Froggie looking for Missy Froggie filled the air for days!  Eventually there would be the egg sacks floating in the water.  A promise of future Mr. and Miss Froggies.

caress brings life
as frogs recite love songs 
'neath glistening leaves
