Just Karma 116
frog adventures 7
(a haibun)

when one is low to the ground –
or at least observant to it…One spots
the insects attempting to cross the road

kaeru reminds the beetle that in the
heat of the day – it is not the best time
To attempt to cross the tarmac

as if the stray caterpillar were an elder, kaeru
gently lifts it from the concrete step and
hops with it to the green space…

*
kaeru, is startled
a tuffet she is not; she
jumps as spider lands

ŠJP/dh

kaeru = in Japanese means both frog and returning.
