12th Bashing Bashō


* Bashing Bashō *

"Old pond, frog jumps in – splash." -Basho
(original haiku)

@JDProuty: Bashō throws a rock ~ into pond, yells, "Campbell's Soup!" ~ The sound of silence. #haiku #RichardBrautigan @lawrencejiko

@NotOneNotTwo // sitting by the pond ~ Bashō falls sound asleep - Splash! ~ all frogs heard laughing // #haiku #BashBashōHaiku!

@NotOneNotTwo: // old pond, frog jumps in ~ Bashō, suddenly inspired.. ~ Splash! drops his pencil // #haiku #BashBashōHaiku!

@NotOneNotTwo: // snake by ancient pond ~ slithering, crawls in his pants ~ sound of Bashō's screams... // #haiku #BashBashōHaiku!
