Just Karma 114
frog adventures 5
(a haibun)

kaeru watches carefully – hiding in
the Sabbatia as the egret flies
overhead seeking lunch

hoping that a fish is more to the
liking of the great white bird
than a small humble frog

while across the road others animals
dine at tables set with plates and
clear glass drinking vessels
*
kaeru ducks into
the shadows looking for flies
after a long hop

kaeru = in Japanese means both frog and returning.

    • Big grin. I’ve done a whole series from another prompt site with kaeru… I don’t have a page set up though. About two years ago (haiku).

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You are certainly getting and eye full – at least it’s of the good kind – to see such wildlife so openly available is delightful and offers a lovely reconnect ๐Ÿ™‚
